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.

LONG POND, Pa. - Whether there will be an IndyCar series race at Pocono Raceway next August significantly depends upon the attendance for yesterday's entertaining race. The crowd appeared to be similar to two years ago when the first IndyCar race at Pocono since 1989 attracted 20,000 to 25,000. There was no word last night from Pocono officials about whether yesterday's crowd for the ABC Supply 500 was big enough to warrant IndyCar returning. The Pocono crowd clearly was larger than races this year at Milwaukee (about 12,000)

Little things mean a lot, especially to a real estate agent who is trying to sell one listing among many. Two things that may seem little but are really not so trifling when it comes to selling a house: keeping it neat for appointments, and washing the windows. "The marketplace is monopolized by first-time buyers as well as empty-nesters," said Mark Wade, who sells houses in Center City for Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Fox & Roach Realtors. "Both sets of buyers have one thing in common," Wade said.

Not long ago, a father could not cry. He had been diagnosed with cancer in his jaw in 2013, and it had returned last year, and the chemotherapy and radiation treatments had cost him his tear ducts. The fluid backed up, infecting his eyes. So in the middle of April, he underwent surgery. The doctors inserted a temporary tube that ran from his eyeballs to his palate and drained the tears away. "It's always something," Jim Kelly said recently. "But you know what? Oh, well. " He was talking on the phone about the sequence of events, some of them serendipitous, some of them tragic, that would bring him to Philadelphia this weekend, to celebrate good news and a righteous cause.

Five bounty hunters were charged in Camden County after beating and allegedly robbing a suspect they were pursuing, then kidnapping the suspect's teenage acquaintance and holding a knife to his throat, authorities said Thursday. The wild incident unfolded about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday along Briarhill Drive in Chesilhurst. The bounty hunters were watching for Eric L. Webb, 38, of Lindenwold, who was wanted on a drug-charge warrant in Camden County, the county prosecutor's office said. As Webb and the 17-year-old acquaintance stepped out of a car, some of the hunters walked toward them, authorities said.

Scott Greer is a big guy, a hearty 6-foot, 285-pound Philadelphia thespian who usually takes on what Orson Welles called "king roles" - Peachum in The Threepenny Opera , Valere in La Bête , Frank Rizzo in local playwright Bruce Graham's forthcoming play of the same name. Greer even played Welles in It's All True . But no role could be bigger than that of Charlie, the miserable, 600-pound gay man in Samuel D. Hunter's darkly humorous play The Whale , which opens Wednesday at Theatre Exile's Studio X. Directed by friend and fellow actor Matt Pfeiffer - they are an Exile twosome with North of the Boulevard and Shining City to their conjoined credit - The Whale finds Greer's wheezing character stuck on his couch 10 years after his partner's death, stranded in a cramped apartment, eating himself into an early grave, yet grasping at reconnection with the family of his past, before he left them, lost love, and let himself go. "There are indications," says Greer, pointing to Charlie's suicidal food trip, "that when his partner died, he stopped caring.

TWO UP, two down. Eric Hunter passed his second test in the featherweight division since being inked by Bernard Hopkins and Golden Boy Promotions in October before fighting on the Hopkins-Sergey Kovalev undercard in November in Atlantic City. But last night's 10-round fight against Nicaraguan fighter Rene Alvarado at 2300 Arena wasn't as easy as the hometown scorecards made it seem. The unanimous decision - 98-92 and 97-93 (twice) - didn't tell the whole story. Hunter (20-3, 10 KOs)

BERNARD HOPKINS has a vision for Eric Hunter. And the 50-year-old promoter and fighter wants to make sure Hunter's ability gets shown to the world. It's why Hopkins and the folks at Golden Boy Promotions signed the current USBA featherweight champion to their stable of fighters in October. They believe in his ability and Hunter believes in his own ability; he's just been waiting for a chance to display it. The 28-year-old West Philly native will get a chance to show that talent in his hometown and in front of a national television audience at 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia tonight, when he takes on Rene Alvarado (21-3, 14 KOs)

THE FILIPPO family home is full of love and humor. Make that a large home-full, with lots of children. Jenn, a former Villanova basketball player, and Ron Filippo have nine - count 'em, nine - children. "We're kind of famous around here," a smiling Ron said in their spacious Furlong, Bucks County, home near Doylestown during a pre-Christmas visit. The children's ages range from 20 to 1. Hunter, the oldest, is a junior at La Salle University on a soccer scholarship. Here's the rest of the Team Filippo roster: Sofia, 15; Francesca, 14; Genevieve, 12; Gioia, 10; Roman, 9; Jameson, 8; Ben, 3; and Noah, 1. Life at the Filippo home is a daily reality production.
