Teenagers charged in connection with illegally caught-bobcat in Carmel
CARMEL — Two teenagers are facing various charges after police found a
bobcat in a leg trap they illegally set in the woods off Drewville Road in
The animal was discovered Sunday by a man and his grandson as they walked
in the woods, Carmel Police Chief Michael Johnson said. The trap, he said,
was on watershed land owned by New York City, which doesn't allow trapping
on its property, and was not clearly labeled with the owner's name, which is
required by state law.
The bobcat was eventually released by Chuck and Kricket Dyckman, the
town's dog-control officers.
