Nevada's First Black Bear Hunt Under Fire
RGJ.com has an article running about bear hunting opponents organizing to stop Nevada's first black bear hunt planned for this fall. A group called "NoBearHuntNV" is appealing to the Nevada Wildlife Commission to stop the hunt on a variety of grounds.
[The appeal] ... attempts to invalidate the hunt on the basis the Nevada Department of Wildlife and the Wildlife Commission failed to meet minimal public noticing and information requirements and failed to consider potential economic impacts to Lake Tahoe businesses. The decision is also being challenged on the grounds it failed to provide an adequate wildlife management justification for the hunt and failed to properly employ science in estimating Nevada’s bear population.
