I had never heard about this, but it seems to be a well established precedent.  You have a right to be secure in your house and the immediately surrounding area.  But not on your back 40, remote property, in the woods, fields, etc....

Govt can put electronic monitoring devices on your peppery, and have an armed raid on your home if you remove those cameras.  

How messed up is that?

    I guess you're not allowed to take them down but how about putting a pic of Hillary about 2 ft in front of the lens??

    I guess I would be going to jail had that ever happened top me.

    It would depend on the state. In PA if something is abandoned and attached to your property, it is yours.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Maybe he should have put a paper bag over his head, sat in a chair in front of the camera and whipped his wicket for the government scumbags to watch.

    Is it illegal to train a bald eagle?  There's a news story about one taking out a goobbermint drone.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Have you guys never messed with a friend by putting any really... risqué pictures on the cards on their cameras?

    Just load a bunch of porn on the cards, then make an anonymous call to the state ethics hotline and report that the squirrel sheriff is using state equipment to view porn.

    Or shoot the cam from out of view.

    Sounds like another nail in Liberty's coffin to me, but I will concede that I have a bad attitude about that whole subject.

    Maybe that guy should put out some game cameras of his own, so he can keep track of what the govscum are doing.

    Put one about 5 feet away from theirs, facing so they'll see it. A mockup would do.

    Fake cameras can  be had for $19-15 bucks at Harbor Fright. I've also been known to cut down trees for no reason on the farm, too.
