How much would you pay to hunt Elk in PA?

WGRC News - Mon, 08/24/2015 - 2:09pm

How much would you pay to hunt an elk in Pennsylvania? One hunter has paid a record $52,500 for a permit from the Pennsylvania Game Commission to hunt a bull elk here this fall. For the third year in a row, the Game Commission made one of its 22 bull elk permits available to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. The permit was auctioned off to the highest bidder in a silent auction to raise money that would stay in Pennsylvania to benefit the state’s well-established and popular elk population. Neither the Game Commission nor the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation would name the hunter or say where he or she was from. As of this past January, there are about 900 elk in Pennsylvania.

WGRC News - Mon, 08/24/2015 - 2:09pm

A 10-year-old Florida girl who was attacked by a shark last week, is being herolded for her bravery in saving her 6-year-old friend from the same fate. Kaley Szarmack was wading in waist-deep water on Wednesday afternoon, when she felt something sharp cut into the side of her right leg. When she saw a 3-foot-long shark in the water, she yelled to her friend to get out of the water. The shark left a 4– to 5-inch gash covering both sides of Kayley’s leg, and as she hobbled to shore, she noticed her friend was still in the water. Kayley then dove back into the water and pulled her friend out. Kayley is recovering from surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.
