Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run a photo from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine) and any other details to

Most of the time wildlife and people can co-exist just fine. But sometimes the situation gets a bit tangled, literally. The nice buck on the trail cam picture sent in by Joe Petcavage had a nasty run-in with an electric fence in Tuscarora Township, Bradford County. In addition to the wire wrapped around its rack, an insulator is hanging below its chin. The photo was taken in November 2010, and it’s likely the buck has since been harvested by a hunter or lost the wire mess when it shed its antlers the following winter.

The long-eared owl in the other picture had a tough time after it became tangled in the cord of a sun shade in Jack Homish’s backyard last August in Mountain Top.

Fortunately the bird was freed and flew away.

If you encounter wildlife that has had a run-in with something man-made and needs assistance, call the Pennsylvania Game Commission at 675-1143.
