6 The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder Fw sa/esoxceed $1 million Slate trappers surpassed the 1973-74 fur sales record of $887.897 by $400.558 this year. according to wildlife resources chief Dan E. Cantner. Canter continued, "'This year's record fur harvest values are due to increases in numbers of animals trapped and market values." Mountain State trappers brought home 50 percent of the actual $1.288,455 market value of the pelts: the remainder was absorbed by fur dealers, buyers, brokers and auction heroins. "This is a conservative estimate of the fur harvest data since many fur sales were not reported or tabulated." Cantner noted. "We need to establish and implement a method of accounting for all pelts trapped and sold." The boost in sales is because of an increased number of red fox. gray fox, raccoon and muskrat trapped plus good price stability. Muskrat sales alone jumped from $201,971 to $279.650. Biologists noted that during the past few years the incidence of rabies reports decreased. This decrease could be attributed to the increased number of foxes taken which are a primary vector of rabies in West October 9, 1975 Good fishing day for Charles Tinney Charles Tinnev. gr~mdson of Mr. and Mrs. Flavil Tinne,/of 599 Sheridan St., enjoyed a good fishing day recently az Sutton Lake.
