VENANGO COUNTIAN PLEADS GUILTY TO SHOOTING BEAR IN RESIDENTIAL AREA
On Nov. 21, the second day of Pennsylvania's bear season, a call from a
concerned citizen sent Pennsylvania Game Commission Wildlife Conservation
Officer (WCO) Clint Deniker to the intersection of 15th Street and Tingley
Avenue in the Franklin Heights area of Franklin, Venango County. The caller
told a dispatcher at the agency's Northwest Region Office that an individual was
shooting at a black bear in a residential area.
WCO Deniker was assisted on scene by Deputy WCO Janet Baker, Land Management
Group Supervisor Jim Deniker, and Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission
Waterways Conservation Officers Mark Kerr and Gregg Pochron.
