The court order, which allows us to maintain the radio-collars on the research bears, prohibits us from broadcasting live den cam footage.  We had hoped to be able to post highlight videos of den cam footage, but our proposal to do so has been denied.

There is a hearing in February that I know of ... with another to follow that one which i don't think is until April. Sad

I'm totally disgusted.  Sad  And I've been supporting the Minnesota DNR by watching their eagle cam.   crying

ALL OF THE FOLLOWING IS FROM DR. LYNN ROGERS IN THE UPDATE SHOWN BELOW: "... the Minnesota DNR is trying to sell the public and legislators on a ban on feeding using their misleading statements of the last couple years to sell the idea. Most of the newspaper articles connect the bill to me. The DNR plays on the public’s fear of bears by saying what “could” happen, ignoring the stellar safety record of this community that has been feeding bears now for over 50 years. The purpose of our research was to document the effects of that feeding on the bears. A problem, though, was that our findings ran contrary to the preconceived notions the DNR bases their policies on. They tried to discredit our research, making statements that we train bears to come up to people for food—a statement not backed up by a single witness in the hearing. Minnesota does not have a bear problem to be solved with this feeding bill.

Senate Bill SF1303 has moved to the Senate Judiciary Committee for a hearing midday on Tuesday, March 17. We very much want Section 20 (Feeding bears) to be struck from the Bill for the following reasons:

1. Bird feeders attract more than birds, and no matter how high someone places the feeders, seed falls on the ground, could attract a bear, and make the person take down the feeders for 30 days.

2. Is the DNR really going to police this? Or will they rely on neighbors reporting neighbors.

3. Do we really want the legislators telling us what we do on our own property to this extent?

4. If feeding is wrong, why can hunters continue to bait bears?

5. Is there really evidence that feeding bears has created a problem for the legislature to deal with to protect public safety? The DNR states what “could” happen in an effort to scare the public into supporting a bill they are throwing their weight behind. If they are saying “could happen,” why haven’t we heard of bad things happening already?

The 8 state senators on the Judiciary Committee are listed here with their contact information: http://www.senate.mn/committees/committee_bio.php

Thank you for all you do.
