HONESDALE, Pa. -- The citation against a man who shot an injured deer has been withdrawn in Wayne County.
Paul Semler had been cited for shooting the deer along Route 6 in Honesdale. Firing a gun is a violation of borough ordinance.
The district attorney said Wednesday he has withdrawn the citation against Semler because he does not believe the man committed a crime. Semler is a school resource officer at Western Wayne High School, and according to the district attorney, Semler has the proper qualifications to euthanize an animal under Pennsylvania game laws.
