LEHMAN TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) – The Pa. Game Commission has lifted the temporary prohibition on hunting and trapping in some areas of Pike County.

The ban had been in place since last week due to the ongoing manhunt for police ambush suspect Eric Frein, who shot and killed State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson II on Sept. 12th.
