New York town will ban hunting, trapping at its parks after February incident

The Oneida County town of New Hartford’s board recently voted to bar hunting and trapping activities at its public parks in reaction to a February incident in which five beaver carcasses were found along the Philips A. Rayhill Memorial Recreational Trail, which is adjacent to a large mitigation pond.
“We are not against gun owners or hunters or trappers,” town supervisor Paul Miscione said. “We just can’t have it in our parks and playgrounds.”
