_Southeastern Oklahoma no longer will be a sanctuary for black bears if a bill that won unanimous approval Monday in the House becomes law.
_House Bill 1464 allows up to 20 black bears to be killed during the fall in four southeastern counties, said Rep. R.C. Pruett, the measure's author. . . .
HB 1464 now goes to the Senate, where a similar measure is pending after a Senate committee passed it earlier this month.
