Maryland May Expand Bear Hunt to 2 More Counties

Posted: Updated:

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP)- The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says it's considering expanding the annual black bear hunt to Frederick and Washington counties.
    
The proposal is among a number of potential changes the agency released Tuesday for the 2016-18 hunting seasons. The concepts will be discussed at a Feb. 3 meeting of department officials and interest groups in Owings Mills.
    
Bear hunting has been restricted to Garrett County and far western Allegany County since Maryland ended a 51-year moratorium in 2004.
    
The document says the bear population east of Allegany is growing, along with bear nuisance complaints. It says additional hunting pressure should help slow the expansion of bears into counties further east.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
