Kenai bear protection at center of battle

ANCHORAGE - This year on the Kenai Peninsula, hunters killed a record 46 brown bears- more than five times the average - under dramatically liberalized state hunting rules, and federal wildlife managers became so concerned they took the unprecedented step of temporarily shutting down the sport hunt on the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.
