Colo. wildlife commission approves new bear rule

SALIDA — The Colorado Wildlife Commission has approved a rule banning the hunting of black bears in their dens.

The commission voted Thursday in Salida to approve the new regulation, which makes it illegal to take, hunt or harass a black bear in its den.

Wildlife commissioners voted to draft it after a hunter said he had killed a 703-pound black bear after tracking it to a cave and waiting for it to emerge. Members of the public complained that was unsportsmanlike.
