Maryland's second bear hunt in a half-century ended last night, after 40 bears were bagged by hunters over four days in Garrett and western Allegany counties, according to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Game management officials decided not to allow a fifth day because improving weather conditions might lead to more bears being killed than this year's limit of 55, said Paul Peditto, director of wildlife and heritage services for the department. Another hunt is expected next October.
