UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man is upset that he had to pay $100 to claim the carcass of a bear he killed with his truck — but the Pennsylvania Game Commission routinely charges fees for keeping road kill animals.
Greg Thompson tells WPXI-TV (http://bit.ly/19DssyB ) he recently hit the bear on U.S. Route 119 in South Union Township, Fayette County. He was surprised to learn he'd have to pay $100 to keep the bear, from which he hopes to have a rug made.
But Thompson's experience isn't unique, according to state wildlife regulations.
Motorists must pay 10 per point to keep antlers from road kill deer, $25 to keep a deer cape, and $50 for a fox.
Still, Thompson isn't happy saying, "I shouldn't have to pay a hundred bucks. They should have to pay my deductible."
