NOT ENOUGH BEARS TO ALLOW HUNTING IN KENTUCKY
7-6-15

CAN WITHSTAND INCREASED HUNTING. THE HUMANE SOCIETY SAYS THE BEAR POPULATION NEEDS MORE TIME.
THE STATE IS ESTIMATED TO HAVE ABOUT 350 BEARS, THE LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER REPORT
ED (HTTP://BIT.LY/1TCHUTV).
LAST YEAR, 21 BEARS WERE KILLED DURING THE HUNTING SEASON. UNDER THE PROPOSED CHANGES, THE STAT
E WOULD PERMIT 35 BEARS OR UP TO 20 FEMALE BEARS TO BE KILLED DURING THE SEASON.
BEARS RETURNED TO KENTUCKY IN THE 1990S AFTER THE POPULATION WAS VIRTUALLY ELIMINATED THROU
GH HUNTING AND HABITAT DESTRUCTION BY THE EARLY 1900S.
