DNR reduces permit for bear researcher
ELY, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has cut back on the number of bears a researcher may study and reduced the time he can do it.
The DNR lowered the number of bears Lynn Rogers can collar and track from 15 to 12. And the permit is valid only through June, rather than December.
The DNR says Rogers hasn't produced enough scientific work.
