Board to protest bow hunting

November 20, 1996|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

TOWSON -- The county school board last night voted to contact Gov. Parris N. Glendening this morning and protest the Maryland Department of Natural Resource's recent opening of sections of Gunpowder Falls State Park to bow hunters.

The bow-hunting season began in the park Oct. 28 and runs through January. But critics say the hunting is endangering students from nearby Hereford High School, who use the park for science experiments, cross-country track practice and other activities.

The school prohibits students from using the park on days it is open to hunting.

Hereford's PTSA, residents and a community group plan to seek an injunction today in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
