Nelo, a beloved drug-sniffing police dog that was found dead on Wednesday, was the victim of an apparent hunting accident, authorities said yesterday. Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll said a hunter who had a connection to the West Caln Township property where the 16-month-old German shepherd was found admitted shooting Nelo. "He seemed to be genuinely upset," said Carroll. "He said he mistook the dog for a coyote. " Carroll said the man, who will not be identified until the investigation has been completed, said the shooting occurred Monday morning.

J.J. Hunter of Upper Merion runs so smoothly it is hard to tell how fast he's going. On Saturday at St. Joseph's University, Hunter went very fast. In the Track and Field Coaches Association of Greater Philadelphia's first indoor meet of the season, Hunter won the Division II (smaller schools) 50- yard dash in 5.4 seconds, beating Henry Sykes of Upper Perkiomen and Eric Jones of Friends' Central, who finished in a second-place tie at 5.6. In the trials, Hunter was officially credited with a 5.4, breaking the meet record of 5.6 set by Vernon Reed of Bok in 1984.

J.J. Hunter of Upper Merion sped to victory in the 100 meters and 200 meters to highlight action at the PIAA district track and field championships Friday and Saturday at Delaware Valley College. "It just feels so unbelievable," Hunter said after his long day was over. "I really wanted to win the 100, and coming back to win the 200 was something extra. " Due to a mixup in the seedings, Hunter and his chief rival in the AAA (large schools) 100 - DeJuan Bean of Chester - met in both the trials and semifinals of the 100, as well as the finals.

Now Herman Hunter is gone. For the third time in three days, a player has walked out of Eagles training camp. At this rate, the cutdown to 60 players on Aug. 19 will become irrelevant. First it was Steve Kenney. Then it was Greg Naron. And then yesterday it was Hunter, the running back who made the team last year with two kickoff returns for touchdowns in the preseason, and who excited a lot of people in the Eagles' nickel offense. The coaches said it was because he did not want to block.

One of the creepiest psychos in cinema history is the one Robert Mitchum plays - a twisted preacher who has the words love and hate tattooed on his knuckles - in Charles Laughton's sole film-directing endeavor, Night of the Hunter. The 1955 black-and-white film is charged with stark, shadowy tension, as the maniacal Mitchum chases two young girls, intent on recovering money stolen by their father. The kids find an ally in a kindly and wise old woman (Lillian Gish), and a menacing battle of good versus evil ensues.

Paul Ludtke fights to restock streams. He fights to reduce noise pollution. He fights to preserve wildlife. Then, Paul Ludtke fishes and hunts. He is conservationist and sportsman. These traits - to preserve and to kill - go hand in hand, insists Ludtke, 78, president of the Philadelphia Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs. He is a short, wizened man, who helped found the 55-year-old federation, a chapter of the statewide organization. Now, he operates it from his basement in the Far Northeast.

J.J. Hunter took a deep breath and sighed, happy his two busy days at the Penn Relays were finally over. "I'm really tired, but happy," the La Salle University junior and former Upper Merion star said. "It's a good feeling knowing we ran our best. " In the IC4A final of the 800-meter relay Saturday afternoon, Hunter anchored teammates Eric Mobley, Mark McCall and Ed Kelleher to third place in 1 minute, 26.14 seconds. East Carolina won in 1:23.32, and Louisiana State University took the Championship of America final in 1:22.

David Lough was sitting on his couch watching TV on Sunday night when he missed his call to the majors. Lehigh Valley manager Dave Brundage left a message, telling Lough to call him back. The outfielder then learned he was joining the Phillies. His two-week stint with the triple-A IronPigs was finished. Lough, who replaced Cedric Hunter, will be used in a platoon with rookie Tyler Goeddel as the Phillies continue their search for a leftfielder. Hunter had one hit in his last 23 at-bats before he was optioned.

CINCINNATI - Cedric Hunter was 18 when he walked into an Atlanta area tattoo parlor and ordered them to etch a Major League Baseball logo onto his left arm. He was a high school baseball star with aspirations to reach the majors. "I got a lot of stuff for it," Hunter said. "But it's something that I loved to do since I was 12. " Hunter wore the tattoo when he was a top prospect with San Diego, when he looked like the ink would spend its summers in major-league ballparks. He reached the majors in 2011, but the tattoo's time there was short lived.

Cedric Hunter's long journey back to the Major Leagues took years of perseverance, but the 28-year-old Phillies outfielder and career minor-leaguer wanted to make one thing clear. "Everybody is giving me congrats and everything, and I am happy about that. But in the back of my mind this is just a beginning," Hunter said before the Phillies departed for Monday's opener in Cincinnati against the Reds. "I have to really go out and prove myself and show that I am ready to be here. " Hunter was signed by the Phillies as a minor-league free agent and is expected to see significant playing time.

LAKELAND, Fla. - There were times over the last four seasons, Cedric Hunter said, when he questioned his future in baseball. Hunter spent the last four seasons in minor-league outposts such as Columbus, Memphis and Akron. Chances appeared bleak that his major-league career would extend past the six at-bats he had in 2011. He wondered if the game was passing him by. "As players, we all go through that stage," Hunter said. "And I felt like I needed to go through that to bounce back and motivate myself to get here.

A decade ago, just when he was relaunching his recording career, James Hunter spent five months living with his managers in West Philadelphia. "I had a lovely time out there," the Englishman said recently from Miami, where he was preparing to board a blues cruise. "I developed quite an affinity for Philadelphia. " The 53-year-old singer-guitarist also has quite an affinity for old-school soul and rhythm-and-blues. His new album, Hold On! , reaffirms his status as one of the modern masters of the vintage sounds.

INSIDE EVERY CAT is a lion. Or a tiger. Or a lynx. Or, really, all of these great hunters. And in your cat's mind, he's a wild predator, too. In fact, all cats are. They love to lurk, prowl, chase and pounce. An indoor cat doesn't have the opportunity to go after real prey (unless you have mice in your home), but he still has strong hunting instincts. This genetic coding doesn't disappear just because he lives a royal lifestyle in your home and has his meals delivered on the feline equivalent of a silver platter.

It is perhaps no surprise to learn that matinee idol Tab Hunter, the clean-cut, clean-living boy-next-door who drove young female fans into fits of ecstasy, was a fabrication created by the Hollywood image machine. No such man existed. Or could exist, as we learn from Tab Hunter Confidential , an engaging, if uneven, new film from the remarkably prolific documentarian Jeffrey Schwarz ( I am Divine , Vito , Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story ). Tab Hunter was the real-life fictional role foisted on a young, shy, gay New Yorker named Andrew Kelm.
