Reasearch Bear Apparently Killed by Hunter
Bear was collared and being tracked by North American Bear Center in Ely
A bear being followed by researchers at the well-known North American Bear Center has apparently been killed by a hunter. Someone anonymously dropped off a bloodied radio collar that had been worn by Sarah, a yearling black bear being tracked by the North American Bear Center near Ely. While not illegal to shoot a collared bear, the Bear Center’s Lynn Rogers says it’s unethical. The Bear Center gained worldwide attention when one of it’s bears, Lily, gave birth to a cub which was broadcast on a webcam.
