Sunday was no day of rest for people in these parts who were kept busy digging out cars and cleaning parking areas after Friday night’s and Saturday morning’s snowstorm, which left about a foot of snow. The bitter cold weather continues for the third straight week.

For the past two months, Game Commission officers in Huntingdon and Fulton County have been conducting a thorough investigation on the out-of-season shooting of a 300-pound black bear, which was killed 100 yards north of the Fulton County line, off the Maddensville Road. The carcass of a 300-pound black bear was found by a hunter in the woods about 150 yards off the road. The bear had been shot sometime during the first three days of buck season, and it had been shot where it was found. The bear had been skinned right down to the nose, by someone experienced in removing pelts, and the stripped carcass left in the woods. A minimum reward of $100 is being offered for any information.
