Personal space again invaded in Southtowns
Tuesday October 9, 2012 | By:Patricia Mumbach |
After reading and hearing of the town meetings in several areas, including Springville and Concord, about all the crime in many areas, it happened to us, again.
Tonight, Sept. 20, 2012, we discovered that our trail camera was stolen from our property. It happened some time between Sept. 16 and Sept. 20, when we went back to switch SD cards.
We have 30 acres, well-posted, but people always go through the property. We are bordered by farms, homes and the Erie County Forestry property. We have caught trespassers, many times. This time, we didn’t, and someone ripped our camera off the tree it was secured to. We reported it to the authorities, that night.
It is such a shame that people feel the need to violate and invade others’ personal space. We work so hard, to keep and care for what we have.
They have taken the joy out of being able to catch candid photos of the wildlife on our property. They have invaded and violated our personal corner of the world. The camera and SD card are gone. The card contained over a year of photos. Thank goodness we have some on our computer!
This is the second time we have had to deal with this violation of our personal space. Several years ago, our home was broken into while we were out and one of our animals was hurt, not to mention the mess in the house and so many personal belongings taken, never to be recovered.
The emotions you go through when this happens goes from fear to anger. This is something you never get over, never forget and swear you will never let happen again.
