It is unlawful to set a cage trap within this safety zone without permission , thats just crazy , how many Boroughs or townships offer cage traps for nusiance raccoons....

When in all reality the citizens are not knowingly breaking the game laws by setting the cage trap to catch nusiance raccoons !! Any input fellas>....

I don't understand what you are all worked up about.

You can't set any trap or cable restraint in a safety zone unless you have permission from the property owner.

What's the big deal?

What em saying is this the township i live in rents box traps for citizens of this township to remove nusiance raccoons out of their garbage ...

Now by the game laws that citizen is breaking the law setting that in a residential area and not getting permission from the neighbors that are within 150 yards !!!

Thats how ludicrous this safety zone is !!THATS THE BIG DEAL , TOWNSHIP AND BOROUGHS ARE KNOWINGLY BREAKING THE GAME LAWS EVERYTIME IT RENTS A TRAP TO SOMEONE !!!!Because alot of elderly people have done this that i know !!

Who cares? It's a NUISANCE animal! Also supposed to not release vector species either, but if grandpa gets a NUISANCE coon in a rented box trap and releases it in the woods outside of town, I don't see any big deal about it.

First, you never asked a question to get a response. Second, I'm going to let you chew on your own foot;

From the Alan Probst post; you wrote "Why do you people get in other peoples business , he makes money at that show and thats the problem today everyone is in everyone else's business ..who cares what he does !!!" A few posts later, you write "
Its nobody's business what another individual does . PERIOD"

And now you're worried about old people cage trapping NUISANCE animals. Take your own advice.

Here's an idea! Find a WCO and ask them all of these questions.

Now, I too wonder why it's ok for Suzy Soccermom to set a rented cage trap for a nuisance raccoon, then upon catching it, can drive it several miles away and let it go, when the game regulations say you need to be lisc'd to take furbearers and cannot remove them live and relocate them live. I imagine that raccoon rabies issues that pop up from time to time all in a particular area stem more likely from this relocating by Suzy Soccermoms, than from rogue coon hunters "restocking", or a bat that flew in and bit several raccoons. Also these nuisance raccoons end up being a pest for someone else, they can't catch it, call in a professional nuisance trapper, and they too can't catch it, unless they resort to DP's or some other alternative. I've had to butt heads with cage playing coons before, no doubt the result of Duddly Do-gooders. I had them stealing the bait until I made a secure bait holder and layed linoleum remnants cut to size inside the traps to trick them. This was barn coon work before griz getterz came along and made dog/cat proofing nice and easy.

When they do come down on trappers, its because of the outlaw trappers out there that caused the problems in the first place. Be nice to your WCO once and see how he treats you... he'll be your best friend.

So somebody in a plan of homes has raccoons tearing up their garbage , they get a box trap , trap the raccoon and do whatever with it ..

Now they have broken the safety zone law , that what im trying to get at it doesnt make sense for cage traps ...

I am goign to petition the P.G.C. On getting it lowered to 50 yards there is no reason it should be 150 , it should be 50 yards if that !!!
