DNR responds: Why Rogers bear permit wasn't renewed

  • Updated: July 28, 2013 - 8:11 AM

The decision to not renew Dr. Rogers’ research permit came after careful consideration of the public safety implications of the permitted activity. The habituation of bears to humans — including hand feeding and close interactions between bears and people — creates a very real public safety issue. Habituation teaches bears to seek out humans for food; there are an estimated 50 or more bears in the Eagles Nest Township area that are subjects of this research study. Many citizens in the Eagles Nest area have told the DNR they have suffered damage and don’t feel safe around these bears and we take those complaints seriously. That, combined with the lack of research outcomes, led the agency to the decision to not renew the permit.
