Connecticut May Open Moose And Bear Seasons

From the Republican American:
_
The state House voted Wednesday to authorize the hunting of moose and bear. The legislation now heads to the Senate. . . .

The DEP estimates 100 or so moose and near 300 black bear wander the state. Both populations are on the rise.

Biologists say moose may multiply into the thousands within another decade. Bear numbers may be growing by 10 to 20 percent a year._
