A strange report from Irish Hill Road in Ellicottville.

John Kiouses of West Valley was arrested recently by the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's department for taking small game out of season. He admitted to trying to shoot a turtle. The suspect was being questioned about a menacing complaint when he made the admission. Kiousus was issued an appearance ticket and the case was turned over to the D.E.C.
