Dr. Lynn Rogers of the North American Bear Center and the Wildlife Research Institute - both located near Ely, MN is pushing for legislation that would make it illegal to shoot his research subjects, ie radio collared bears, during the MN bear hunting season. This comes after one of his research bears was shot by a hunter last week. It is not presently illegal to shoot a radio collared bear in Minnesota. What do you think about this subject? Are you for or against legislation regarding radio collared bears?
also - there is a facebook group "Minnesota Bear Hunters" dedicated to this subject.
