PA - Trooper Cited for Hunting Offense

November 28, 2006
By Bianca Barr

A state trooper and another man in Luzerne County are in trouble with the state game commission. They have been cited for illegally killing a bear near a housing development.

Trooper Bernard Kizis and a man from Pittston are facing possible fines with the summary offenses. Wildlife conservation officers with the Pennsylvania Game Commission said the men were too close to a home when they took shots at the black bear last week.

Neighbors said it happened along General Pulaski Street in the Polonia Estates, a housing development in Rice Township, Luzerne County.

The trooper and his friend were cited for violating the safety zone and unlawfully killing an animal.

The developer of the property said he was there when it happened.

"First thing they didn't have permission to hunt in private land and most concern is too close to the house," said Wlodek Jaskiewicz.
