Researchers capture 123-pound brown-hued black bear in Maine


BANGOR, Maine — Randy Cross has been studying the state’s black bears for a long time, and each spring, he and his crew spend more than a month trapping bears that they’ll “enlist” into Maine’s long-running research project.

One thing he has learned over the years: Every season is different.

“I’ve trapped bears for 34 years, and most people would assume I’ve seen it all,” Cross said during a conversation in his subterranean office at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s Bangor headquarters. “I know better, because every trap season, there are surprises, things I’ve never seen. But this trap season was very unusual.”
