NY: Teenagers charged in connection with illegally caught-bobcat in Carmel

December 29, 2009

Teenagers charged in connection with illegally caught-bobcat in Carmel 

CARMEL Two teenagers are facing various charges after police found a bobcat in a leg trap they illegally set in the woods off Drewville Road in Carmel.

The animal was discovered Sunday by a man and his grandson as they walked in the woods, Carmel Police Chief Michael Johnson said. The trap, he said, was on watershed land owned by New York City, which doesn't allow trapping on its property, and was not clearly labeled with the owner's name, which is required by state law.

The bobcat was eventually released by Chuck and Kricket Dyckman, the town's dog-control officers.
