Deer Stands Tampered With Behind Post Office, Resident Says

A man who hunts deer behind the Huntingdon Valley Post Office told police someone had cut the locks off his deer stands.

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."

The preceeding information was supplied by the Lower Moreland Police Department

Does this mean you're allowed to hunt on your own property?

I'm glad they did it. It's a shame they didn't damage all of them. Isn't he real sporting sitting up high picking them off. Jerk.

My hero whoever damaged the deer stands, good work, keep it up. Leave our wildlife alone hasn't enough been done to them by building and blacktopping where they live. The Earth cannot exist without animals, people yes we serve no purpose there is not one single thing we have ever done to better the Earth. As George Carlin said when Mother Earth gets tired of us it will shake us off like so many fleas.
