14 bears killed in Nevada’s 3rd bear hunt
January 2, 2014
Nevada's third black bear hunting over.
The Department of Wildlife says 14 bears were killed by hunters, with the last one killed Nov. 23. Of those, four were female and 10 were male. Law allows as many as 20 to be killed in the season that ran from Sept. 15 through Tuesday.
The agency this year excluded the Lake Tahoe Basin and areas along popular hiking trails on Mount Rose Summit from the hunt area after complaints from residents.
Wildlife commissioners have said they will review the bear hunt after this season.
In the past three years, 135 bear-hunting tags were issued and 39 bears were been killed.
