No bear hunt in N.S. this spring

There won’t be a spring bear hunt in Nova Scotia.

The province says after careful consideration and public consulations, they won’t go ahead with it.

A recent survey showed 51 percent were opposed to the hunt, 47 percent were for it, and two percent were neutral.

The Department of Natural Resources and Renewables says they received dozens of letters, most weren’t in favour of a bear hunt.

The province is working with Acadia University on a research project to improve knowledge on the black bear population.
