From Minnesota’s Winona Daily News:
A bear expert faces a harassment charge for confronting a hunter who shot a young bear researchers had been studying.
Lynn Rogers berated and swore at the hunter after he shot the animal — known to researchers as Moe — from a stand about a quarter-mile from Rogers’ research station near Ely on Sept. 2, authorities said.
Rogers, 67, acknowledged the confrontation but said the incident has been blown out of proportion.
“It’s just that we had some sharp words, some heated words in a highly emotional situation that he started,” Rogers said Monday.
