  5. GAME COMMISSION WORKING TO CAPTURE BEAR, INFORM PUBLIC OF ATTACK Sun Gazette photo The Pennsylvania Game Commission is attempting to capture the black bear that attacked and severely injured a woman Wednesday in Lycoming County, and game wardens will be going door-to-door in the area to inform residents about the attack and measures they can take to discourage bears from their properties. The Game Commission on Thursday set two live traps near the home where the attack occurred, and on Friday morning, a team of tracking dogs set out on the bear’s trail to try to locate it. While black-bear attacks on humans are rare in Pennsylvania, and there’s nothing to suggest the same bear will attack again, out of an abundance of caution, the bear will be euthanized if trapped or located. The bear has not been located as of this time. While black bears are strong and powerful animals that always should be respected, they generally are passive and pose little threat to people, said Game Commission black-bear biologist Mark Ternent. Most injuries from bears can be explained by human activities such as feeding or accidentally surprising a habituated bear in close quarters, Ternent said. Although not all of the details surrounding this bear attack are known, the Game Commission’s investigation has revealed the bear had cubs by its side, and the victim was attacked as she attempted to retrieve her dog, which had run toward the bears. “While there still are some questions about what led to this attack, it can be said with certainty that these types of encounters are extremely rare,” Ternent said. “Pennsylvania has a large bear population – about 20,000 animals. It’s not unusual for bears to occur in residential areas, and interactions between people and bears occur regularly, typically without incident. “While bear attacks seldom occur, there’s always potential for the unfortunate exception to the rule,” Ternent said. “Fortunately, most of the injuries that have occurred in Pennsylvania have not been life-threatening.” In going door-to-door to inform neighbors about the attack, game wardens also are educating the public about bears and steps that can be taken to discourage bears from properties. It is unlawful in Pennsylvania to intentionally feed bears, and items like garbage or birdseed can attract bears to a property when left outside. If such food sources are removed, a bear has little reason to spend time around homes. “In canvassing the homes in the area, our officers are making sure residents are aware of the law that prohibits the feeding of bears, and otherwise doing what they can to ensure their safety,” said David Mitchell, director of the Game Commission’s Northcentral Region. “While black-bear sightings are relatively common, and in most cases there’s no need to report seeing a bear, we are asking neighbors for the time being to report any black bears they see because we’re looking for the bear that caused this attack.” The Game Commission’s Northcentral Region can be reached by phone at 570-398-4744. While many of the state’s black bears are hibernating by mid-December, Ternent said the timing of hibernation is influenced by available food, and follows a staggered schedule through which pregnant females enter hibernation first, then other bears. Thus, it’s not unusual for bear sightings to occur into late December, even early January, he said. If the bear involved in the attack is captured, it will undergo a full evaluation at Penn State’s animal diagnostics laboratory, Ternent said. Meanwhile, Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans expressed sympathy to the victim. “The Pennsylvania Game Commission extends its full concern and sympathy to the victim of this attack, and her family, as we continue to respond to the incident,” Burhans said.

    Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    Wish I were with you!! 🎄💚
  8. So you know you didn't pass your pee test, I'm guessing, so you decide to resist arrest? That wasn't a smart move for 2 reasons, 1. you're at work when this happens. 2. you're on probation!! SMH
  9. I hope they remember this - "The casket, covered with an array of pastel carnations, was closed. It had to be. Kimmy's body, found in the woods nine days after her murder, was so badly decomposed that her face was unrecognizable. Rick and Jodi gazed at the coffin, envisioning what was inside: a pillow of a cat embroidered by Kimmy's grandmother; four red roses; a poem by her 17-year-old brother, Ricky; and a photograph of Kimmy with her 2-month-old niece, whom she'd met for the first time on her final birthday that Easter Sunday. Because Kimmy's body couldn't be dressed, the green, flowered dress she had worn the day she turned 15 was tucked in the coffin beside her."

    Who's Jesse Porter?

    Ridgway man indicted on more federal charges By RUTH BOGDAN Era Reporter r.bogdan@bradfordera.com 53 min ago ERIE — A Ridgway man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Erie on additional child pornography-related charges, U.S. Attorney Scott Brady announced Tuesday. A new indictment — this time with eight rather than three charges — has been filed against Jesse Porter, 41, of 207 Polk Ave., Ridgway. The new indictment replaces the first one, which has been dismissed. Porter is charged with six counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and one count each of distribution of material depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor and receipt of material depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor, court records indicate. Brady initially announced charges against Porter on Nov. 13. According to court records, between January and November, Porter took inappropriate photographs with his cell phone of two children: one born in 2015 and the other in 2003. The criminal complaint states that on Oct. 22, information on possible child pornography distribution was received by the Pittsburgh office Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), an investigative branch of the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The HSI Attache Office in Vancouver, Canada, reported that Kik user “usemywife814pa” received child pornography and distributed child pornography to other Kik users. The photo was traced to Porter, the complaint stated. On Nov. 1, law enforcement officials obtained a federal search warrant for Porter’s residence to search for evidence. The warrant was executed Nov. 7. Also that day, investigators interviewed Porter at his place of employment, according to the complaint. The criminal complaint against Porter was filed Nov. 8. According to a press release from Brady, the law provides up to 220 years and/or a $2,000,000 fine for the charges; the actual sentence will be based on the seriousness of the allegations and Porter’s criminal history. Assistant U.S. Attorney Christian Trabold is prosecuting the case. Porter’s next court appearance is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. Friday in Erie before Magistrate Judge Richard Lanzillo. The investigation was part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Project Safe Childhood uses federal, state and local resources to locate, apprehend and prosecute people who sexually exploit children. The initiative was launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice and is led by the U.S. Attorneys’ Office and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Sections.
