CLEVELAND TOWNSHIP – A man from Columbia County was charged Wednesday with trying to kill a bear he said damaged his property.
Marvin W. Johnson, 76, of Cleveland Township was charged with attempting to kill wildlife through the use of poison, placing out food items that might cause bears to congregate, and disturbance of wildlife.
Newswatch 16 talked with Johnson last month when he said a black bear damaged his property.
Officers from the Pennsylvania Game Commission said when they checked out the damage on Johnson's property, they found trays of bread soaked with a substance consistent with antifreeze.
It was found near a barn on his property.
