<![CDATA[Groups back feds in hunting-ban lawsuits]]> KENAI (AP) — More than a dozen environmental groups are seeking to join lawsuits filed by the state of Alaska over a federal ban on certain hunting techniques in national refuges and preserves.

The two lawsuits filed in January claim the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service illegally pre-empted the state’s authority to manage wildlife by banning state-approved hunting practices.

The federal regulations prohibit the killing of black bears in their dens with the aid of artificial light and shooting brown bears over bait stations.

Adam Sullivan was arraigned on first- and second-degree murder charges Saturday. The hearing had initially been scheduled for Friday but was postponed due to medical reasons.

Court documents say Sullivan’s 13-year-old daughter called 911 on Thursday to report that her mother had been shot. The girl and her 11-year-old sister were both home when the shooting took place but were unharmed.
