Dog injured in illegal animal trap in Middletown Township in County Park


MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP, PA – Police in Middletown Township reported today that a dog walking with its owner got caught in an illegal animal trap. Police reminded residents that placing traps on public land is illegal and dangerous to pets and people alike.  The traps were found in the wooded area between Lower Orchard and Juniper in the southern part of Frosty Hollow County Park

It should go without saying that wildlife leg traps are not permitted to be placed by residents on township land. One unlucky pup found one of the traps and our ACO located another. Please be careful if you and your four-legged friends frequent the wooded area between Lower Orchard and Juniper,” police said.
