I recently read this story on another waterfowl site and wanted to share it with you guys.

YORK COUNTY WOMAN FOUND GUILTY OF HARASSING HUNTERS
READING - Pennsylvania Game Commission officials today announced that Nancy Lee Lauro, 50, of Hanover, York County, was found guilty of interfering with five lawful hunters during the 2005 regular rifle deer season. The hearing before Magisterial District Judge Gerald E. Shoemaker, in Dover, resulted in Lauro being ordered to pay a $500 fine. The York County District Attorney's Office represented the Game Commission in the hearing.
On Nov. 28, the first day of the 2005 regular rifle deer season, Lauro confronted five hunters, including two junior hunters, and knowingly interfered with their hunt on numerous occasions during the day. The five hunters were on land where they had permission to hunt, were properly licensed and were wearing the required amount of fluorescent orange. Under the Game and Wildlife Code, it is unlawful to knowingly or intentionally interfere with lawful hunting and furtaking.
After being notified about the interference and harassment, Pennsylvania Game Commission Wildlife Conservation Officers (WCOs) conducted an investigation of the incident and filed charges on Lauro.
"Unfortunately, law-abiding hunters and trappers sometimes are subjected to harassment by others for a variety of reasons," said WCO Chad R. Eyler. "However, if we are notified when these incidents occur, and our investigation finds that a crime against lawful hunters or trappers was committed, we will enforce the interference law and protect lawful hunters and trappers from this type of conduct by others."

Good to see that law being enforced. I would have raised the fine and ordered her to 40 hours of commuity service, helping clean up and help conserve wetlands and state game lands.

Personally I wish she was ordered to do 100 hours of community service work in the outdoors, like picking up litter in the rural areas.

It is that behavior which prompted me to get a cell phone that will take pictures and video. I am sure WCO's appreciate indisputable evidence :smile:

that 500 should go towards leasing those five a spot to hunt. They can never redo a hunt and too bad there had to be juniors there subjected to that.
call 'em in and kill 'em all
