Bear Poaching Charges Lead To Hunting Suspension

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — A western Maryland man has had his hunting privileges suspended for two years to resolve charges that he shot two black bears out of season.

The Cumberland Times-News reports that 31-year-old Charles Evans of LaVale had a hearing Tuesday in Cumberland.

He was charged in November with killing a 180-pound female bear and shooting a cub that was not recovered. He allegedly shot the animals in the Green Ridge State Forest near Oldtown.

The case was placed on the inactive docket but the charges could be reactivated if Evans violates the terms of the deal. He must pass a hunter education course before reapplying for a license. He also must avoid breaking any laws in the interim.
