State wildlife managers say more hibernating bats have been found to be infected with a disease fatal to the winged mammals in a western Maryland cave.
Only one of the dozen bear dens Harry Spiker has identified for study this winter is in Allegany County and it is 30 feet off the ground inside a hollow red oak tree on the eastern side of Green Ridge State Forest.
Killed in the line of duty. A wildlife conservation officer is gunned down in a shootout with a suspect. It happened just over the Maryland border near Gettysburg.
