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

THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES SAYS KENTUCKY’S BEAR POPULATION IS STILL TOO SMALL TO ALLOW FOR AN
EXPANSION IN HUNTING QUOTAS.
BUT STATE WILDLIFE OFFICIALS SAY THE NUMBER OF BEARS IN KENTUCKY HAS GROWN AND THE POPULATION 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 REPORTED (HTTP://BIT.LY/1TCHUTV).
LAST YEAR, 21 BEARS WERE KILLED DURING THE HUNTING SEASON. UNDER THE PROPOSED CHANGES, THE STATE WOULD PERMIT
35 BEARS OR UP TO 20 FEMALE BEARS TO BE KILLED DURING THE SEASON.
