Bear Researcher-3

Lynn Rogers speaks to the media after meeting with Gov. Mark Dayton about his research, at the Capitol, Monday, July 22, 2013 in St. Paul, Minn. Rogers remains under orders to remove radio collars from bears he's studying by the end of the month after a meeting with Dayton and the state's natural resources commissioner Monday, but will be allowed to appeal. But the state Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Landwehr stressed he has no plans to lift his decision to rescind Rogers' permit for tracking collars on 10 bears in the Eagles Nest Lake area near Ely, which expires July 31.
