Another collared bear has been killed ... sweet, dear June... at least they think she's been killed.   crying

The DNR gave them the radio collar but would not even give them a respectable answer as to what happened to her!!!  Everyone thinks they are telling the the hunters to kill the collared bears.  Sad  AND, she has 2 cubs who will have a very hard time surviving the winter without their Mama.   crying

OMG!      this bullying of Dr. Rogers is turning into a war against black bears ....  the narrative states ....

"..... Beginning to think the worst, Sue drove to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Office in Tower, MN, where she found the telemetry signal from June’s radio-collar coming from the building....."

.... from the building!? ...... and no one thought about notifying the Wildlife Research Institute!?

What a strong message of disrespect. There is no good going on in that part of the woods! .... and they're rubbing the Institute's nose in it

They are making good on their threat  ....

“DNR officials have indicated they are likely to enforce their decision against Rogers regardless of any ruling by an administrative law judge.”  

How awful!!!!

The DNR finally confirmed that June has been killed.  I really do not understand what is going on out there.  The hearing is not until February!!!!!!!  Sad

Patti .... I think it is pretty clear ... the DNR are not going to wait for the hearing in February .... they are going to pick off the bears one by one ... no bears with collars ... no permit to put new collars on bears ..... no research .... no need for Dr. Rogers. They are going to extremes to get their way.

Remember what they said...
“DNR officials have indicated they are likely to enforce their decision against Rogers regardless of any ruling by an administrative law judge.”

I really don't think that the wounding of Aster and the killing of June and Dot in a relatively short period of time is attributed to bad luck .... they said they would enforce their decision ... and it appears that they are going to do that one way or another. Maybe I'm way off base ... but I don't think this was fate ... something doesn't smell right.

The Mayor of Ely has made a terrific statement in his column in The Ely Echo - see penultimate paragraph in Dr. Rogers Update for 6th October

Lizzie, thanks for bringing the article here.....

Nice that the mayor spoke up against the DNR and specific officials........however, his message was all about
money.....and the hate mails and harassment he is getting.  
Perhaps he would like to get a few of the mails that Dr Rogers gets!!  Angry
 
I didn't see a word of compassion or sadness for the loss of the bears.  crying  crying

I agree Sherri. All of these 'powers that be' have their own personal agendas and most have nothing to do with protecting and studying the bears. We live in a very narcissistic society. Dr Rogers and his team are in the fight of their lives ... they appear to be the only local entity that has the bear's best interest at heart.... most others would just as soon see the bears exterminated and some have made it their mission to do exactly that. I don't promote 'hate' mail ... but the Mayor has to realize that the world is watching and they don't like what they see happening in Ely ...

....it is shameful

And I agree, also. 

The situation is heartbreaking and doesn't appear to be easing up.  I guess the most help we can give is to continue to write letters supporting Dr. Roger's quest.
