Pa. warns hikers, hunters of possible danger on game land


BOILING SPRINGS, Pa. (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania Game Commission says hunters, hikers and others who use a state game land in South Middleton Township should be on the lookout for spike strips that could puncture a tire or foot.

A hiker recently found a piece of wood with exposed screws on State Game Lands 305, on the Cumberland/York county line between Dillsburg and Mount Holly Springs.

Wildlife Conservation Officer Barry Leonard said the screws were pointed up from the ground and the board was hidden on a trail. He said the board appears to have been placed on the trail intentionally and with the intent to cause harm to people, animals, or equipment.

Game Commission officers are investigating the incident and looking for any other devices that may be in the area.

Anyone with information should call the Game Commission’s Southcentral Regional Office at 814-643-1831.Get breaking news, weather and traffic on the go. Download the ABC27 News App and the ABC27 Weather App for your phone and tablet.
