DNR cuts Ely bear researcher's permits

Email News Alerts

Ely bear researcher Lynn Rogers and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources have locked horns again.

In late December, the DNR renewed Rogers' research permit to study black bears, but cut back the number of bears he may radio-collar from 15 to 12. The permit is valid only through June rather than December, so that future renewals won't have to be made when bears are denned and Rogers has den cameras deployed, DNR officials said.
