CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A 12th bear has been killed in Nevada's
inaugural bear hunt.
Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy says a 350-pound female was killed by a hunter Sunday in the Pine Grove Hills in Lyon County, south and east of Wellington.
Like the others, the bear had never been tagged or marked as a
nuisance bear by the Department of Wildlife.
Regulations approved by the state Wildlife Commission authorized
up to 20 bears to be killed and set a season running from Aug. 20
through Dec. 31. But no more than six can be female. If another female is killed, the season will be closed.
