ForeSt — I noticed a northern goshawk feeding on something and as I approached, it took off and flew away with a grouse clasped in its talons. I was impressed with the hawk’s ability to take off with such a relatively large load, and wondered how its load carrying capacity compares to that of an aircraft. — WCO franK e. leiChtenberger, Marienville Huntingdon — I was inspecting a timber operation on SGL 65 when a flying squirrel came running toward us from a recently felled tree. The squirrel ran right up the side of my pants, across my shoulders and jumped onto the timber operator, who was standing next to me, before running up another tree. We got a laugh and thought it was good there wasn’t anyone else around to catch two grown men jumping around trying to avoid a little flying squirrel. — pgC fOrester brent MCneal, huntingDOn Cameron — I had to examine a dead elk in one of the steeper sections of my district. The combination of ice and frozen ground forced me to use a PGC biologist’s winch. He lowered me down about 70 yards to the elk, where I did a field necropsy on the remains. It was near vertical, which probably accounted for the lack of predation on the well-preserved specimen. — WCO Wayne a. hunt, st. Marys SomerSet — After catching a nuisance bear I called an individual who was hosting a fishing derby on his property for local kids, so Deputy Harding and I processed the bear for the group. One of the kids voiced how much he appreciated the opportunity to see a bear, because he hadn’t caught any fish. I had to chuckle because although the fishing was slow, the bear saved the day. — WCO brian Witherite, MeyersDale

An Engineering Study?

Evicted?

CrawFord — A few months ago my daughter, Rebecca, asked me if I could do a presentation at my grandson’s school in Beaver Falls. I told her she should call the PGC Southwest Region Office, because I worked out of the Northwest Region. Becky did make the call and WCO Matt Kramer did an outstanding presentation. I was told Matt could have stayed another hour, because the kids had so many questions and were so excited. I have never met Matt but a big thank you for what must have been a fascinating presentation. — Deputy JOhn reusChlein, linesville

Superb

Rappelling

Came to the Rescue

Fulton — Paul Cutchall from Hustontown had a small problem with a big bear. It seemed the 450-pound bruin had a sweet tooth and tore a door off his shed to help itself to his freezer and a half gallon of ice cream. Thanks to his quick call, I was able to trap it the following night using several dozen chocolate chip cookies. — WCO Kevin MOuntz, Waterfall Snyder — After many years there was finally a pair of nesting bald eagles in Snyder County. People have been seeing bald eagles in the county for years, but we never could confirm a nest. — WCO harOlD MalehOrn, selinsgrOve
