Craig resident Richard Kendall poses with the 703-pound black bear he shot in its cave in late November 2010. Kendall’s kill prompted the Colorado Division of Wildlife to draft regulations to prohibit the hunting, taking or harassment of bears in dens. Kendall was also fined by the DOW for using artificial light during his hunt of the bear.

The Colorado Division of Wildlife is proceeding with a draft regulation that would prohibit the hunting, killing and harassment of bears in dens. During a March 10 meeting in Denver, the Colorado Wildlife Commission directed the DOW to move forward with draft language of the regulation, which states that “no person shall hunt, take or harass bears in a den,” DOW spokesman Randy Hampton said.
