Animal rights groups failed to block the bear hunt which began this morning and extends through December 11. The Department of Fish and Wildlife issued 75 bear hunting permits with a significant number of the outdoorsmen coming from out-of-state. State environmental officials say the hunt is being held to help reduce the growing number of complaints about bears. Biologists predict 300 to 700 bears may be taken over the course of the hunt.
