Irvington family pleads for end to illegal hunting on property
An Irvington family is pleading with authorities to stop illegal deer hunting on their property before someone gets hurt.
The Barellas say they have been finding deer carcasses on their property for the past 15 years. They've even put up dozens of no trespassing signs. But still, the problems with hunters continue. The latest deer carcass was found right behind one of their signs Monday.
A Greenburgh town ordinance bans hunting in the area. After the Barellas documented the problem, two agents from the Department of Environmental Conservation finally responded with patrols of the area. Greenburgh police have also been called to the Barella?s property but have made no arrests.
