NMSU to conduct black bear study

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – Researchers at New Mexico State University are working to get a better idea of how many black bears are in the state.

This summer, researchers will set bear rubs and hair traps to collect samples from bears in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in northern New Mexico and the Sacramento Mountains in south-central New Mexico.

This should make it easier for the state to set hunting quotas.
