CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The 14th bear in Nevada's inaugural bear hunt has been killed.

Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy says a 250-pound male was killed by a hunter Monday in the Pine Nut Mountains east of Gardnerville.

Since the season opened Aug. 20, nine males and five females have been killed by hunters. The season ends Dec. 31, but will close earlier if a sixth female bear is killed before then.

Half of the black bears killed have been in the Pine Nut Mountains. Two were taken in the Sweetwater Mountains near Wellington and three in the Pine Grove Hills area in Lyon County.

Two others were killed in the Carson Range.

None have been killed in the Lake Tahoe Basin, where opposition to the hunt was strongest.
