Bear poached with crossbow in somerset pa

I was recently reading a article in our local newspaper about a 600lb bear shot with a cross in somerset county pa. I was wondering if anyone has read this story or heard of it?

I cant read what you wrote can you please speak english.

Thats a piss off for sure, whoever did it is an idiot and should be fined to the fullest, someone might have had the story of a lifetime this hunting season and the trophy of a lifetime if that moron would have left the bear alone for another month.

This did not happen in Somerset. This happened in the Poconos about 10 mins from my house. Its a shame! I hope they catch this person soon! I drive by the restuarant pretty regularly and its a shame to know there are people out there like that! Brick Wall,)
