A Huntingdon Valley resident called the Lower Moreland Police Department to report that several of his deer stands had been tampered with. A deer stand is a platform secured to a tree to give a hunter a higher vantage point.
According to the report, the resident has permission from the property owners (Lenape Properties Management) to hunt deer on the property behind the Huntingdon Valley Post Office.
The man reported that the cable locks that hold his deer stands to the tree were cut off. A total of five deer stands were tampered with and 25 locks were cut. Two stands were damaged beyond repair, according to the report.
A note was stapled to the tree where his stands are located that read, “Warning of Criminal and Unlawful Trespass and Hunting.” There was a phone number listed on the note that traced back to the PA Game Commission. The resident told police that he has been hunting on this property for years.
The police filed the report as "criminal mischief."
