Man Charged with Illegally Killing Black Bear
POCONO TOWNSHIP, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Game Commission has charged a man with killing a black bear the day after archery bear season ended.
Authorities say Robert Vanehy, 69, of Stroudsburg, admitted killing the 400-pound bear last week behind a home near Tannersville.
Vanehy is charged with a misdemeanor, which carries a fine of up to $3,000.
The Game Commission is also seeking a replacement cost of $1,500 for the bear.
