Bear Killing Ends with Calls for Changes

Last year, a bear that was roaming on his property, was shot killed by an off-duty Ridgefield police sergeant. Since then, the killing of that bear, which led to the orphaning of her two cubs, has brought renewed national attention. Mitch Bolinsky is the state lawmaker who took much of the public anger. Since then, Bolinsky was one of about 700 people to testify against a bill that would allow a proposed bear hunting season in Connecticut. Bolinsky’s testimony against the bill however, comes after an annual “State of the Bears” report released last week by Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection… showing a dramatic increase in the number of confrontations between bears and people.
