Rumors were circulating that the Pennsylvania Game Commission were trapping deer in Lehigh County and removing them from wildlife management unit 5C. Calls and emails were coming in from worried residents. The Pennsylvania Game Commission is trapping deer, but they are not moving them at all, they are tagging them for a study on the deers' movements and populations. The study is tagging deer in Berks, Bucks, Lehigh and Montgomery counties. They are not moving any deer though, so they will be there come hunting season.

Bears are also getting attention in Pennsylvania. With the milder winter, some bears have not denned for hibernation. Wildlife Conservation Officers across the state have been receiving calls for bears that have ventured into residential areas, and the WCOs tranquilize them and move them. From The Morning Call.
