ELY – Researchers are saying goodbye to one of their oldest bears after she was shot and killed in a "hunting situation." Dr. Lynn Rogers made the announcement on his daily update.He said Dot wore a radio collar and was tracked longer than any other bear in the study."Dot had a great, gentle personality and was a favorite of many who got to see her in the course of her 13 years," said Rogers.It is legal to shoot collared bears, but the DNR asks hunters not to because they are very valuable to research efforts.Dot is one of two female bears who have been shot this year, but the other bear survived.(Photo Courtesy: Bear Facts & Fun)
