Another Almost Game Warden Shooting in Pennsylvania

Soon after the recent killing of a Pennsylvania game warden by a
poacher, news of another incident involving a poacher firing shots
toward PA game wardens who were investigating a possible poaching
incident.

According to Associated Press reports, Terrance Edward Weiss Jr.
of Madison Township, PA, was charged Saturday with terroristic
threats, simple assault, reckless endangerment and hunting
violations.

A Game Commission investigator’s affidavit says a wildlife
conservation officer and a deputy were checking into a report of
the use of corn bait near Moscow when someone yelled at them to
stop or he would shoot them.

Investigators say three rounds were then shot at or near them,
and Weiss later admitted to firing them.

The 39-year-old man is in Lackawanna County Prison with bail set
at $100,000. Court officials say he doesn’t have a lawyer on
record.
