ST. PAUL, (AP) – Minnesota bear researcher Lynn Rogers has won a temporary reprieve in his fight with the state Department of Natural Resources.

Rogers and the DNR settled on a temporary agreement Monday that allows Rogers to keep radio collars on 10 bears. Rogers also will be allowed to continue hand-feeding bears around his research center near Ely under certain conditions.

But the agreement also bans him from putting live den cams on the Internet, a practice that drew international attention to his work.

The DNR also says it still wants to revoke Rogers’ research permit, which was set to end on Wednesday.

The case is expected to go before a state administrative law judge in the next six to nine months.
