A Wayne resident discovered a hunting platform in a Radnor Township park on Sunday. Hunting in the township's public parks is illegal.
Matt Golas told Radnor Patch that he discovered a deer shooting platform tied to a tree in the woods at the clearing in the back of Ordoriso Park, which is located on West Wayne Avenue.
"Odorisio is a very popular spot for sledders, dog walkers, picnickers and folks who like to stroll through the woods. Setting up and hunting platform in the heavily used are is not only illegal, but ignorant," said Golas, who reported what he found to the police and township officials.
As of Monday afternoon, the platform was removed by township workers.
Lt. Andrew Block of the Radnor Police Department said they believe the platform has not been up long in the woods that surround the park's playing fields. He said they believe that the person using it was likely bow hunting, as no cartridges have been found near the site and no reports of gun fire have been reported.
Block asked that anyone with information on the platform call Radnor Township police at (610)688-5600.
