The following Op-Ed appeared in the 11/20/15 Baltimore Sun:

End the senseless trophy killing of Md. black bears

For the 12th year in a row, your state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) enthusiastically supported the trophy killing of black of bears in Western Maryland for those among the 2 percent of Marylanders who hunt for sport.

DNR allowed the hunt even though the majority of Marylanders are opposed to such efforts, favoring non-lethal wildlife management alternatives.

Season one in the latest streak began in 2004 with 20 bears killed; the bloodshed peaked this year with a record 95 bears killed. And to think, I was once assured years go by a DNR official that hunting black bears would not happen here.
