The state game commission delivered its conclusion on an animal print in Willistown.
Monday, February 18, 2013
The animal track was found near Fox Chase Road, just east of White Manor Country Club.
Update 2/19/13 9pm: Willistown Police received word from the state game commission that the print belongs to a "large domestic animal, such as a dog." So that settles that. Original story continues below. A Willistown resident sent in the above photograph of an unusual animal track she found in her yard off Hillview Road.

Willistown Police photographed the print and sent the photo to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, she said.

The structure was built by Eagle Scout Cody Pitz.
The new bird banding station at Rushton Farm looks a bit like a gazebo one might find in a nice park. The wooden structure, built by Eagle Scout Cody Pitz, features a skylight in the roof but no walls, and is big enough to easily fit the crew of about 12 people who attended its first use the morning of Wednesday, May 25. It was a slow morning—the tail end of the spring migration station—until a volunteer birder named Lou approached the station and breathlessly announced, "Lisa, we've got a pileated." Lisa Kiziuk, associate stewardship manager at Willistown Conservation Trust, was immediately off and running. Through the field and into the wood, she found a pileated woodpecker in one of the 10 nets that had been set up at dawn. Returning …
