Hunters asked not to shoot radio-collared bears
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) asks hunters participating in Minnesota's bear season, which opened September 1, to avoid shooting radio-collared research bears.
The bears are marked with large colorful ear tags or colorful streamers.
DNR researchers are monitoring about 30 radio-collared black bears, most of them in northwestern Minnesota, especially near Thief Lake Wildlife Management Area and the Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge.
