Roxy Bender writes to us- I found this photo at my father’s home after he died. I have no idea who either of the men are in the photo. When I lived in Tioga I asked several people there and no one knew them either. Maybe the readers could help.
The two men, one is a State Trooper, appear with a mountain lion which was evidently killed by one of them.
We do not know what year the picture was taken or exactly where, but it was taken in Tioga County and involves a mountain lion, so it may be possible for readers who remember any such incidents to remember who might have been involved.
Peggy Lampman tells us- ”Makes me curious if this is the picture that goes with the story I heard long ago. I am sure others have heard it as well. About a farmer complaining about a mountain lion killing his calves and was told they don’t exist around here. When the farmer finally killed the large cat, he called the authorities to come out and see it. When they got to his farm they wanted to take the mountain lion.. The farmer told them, they couldn’t take something that doesn’t exist! LOL!
