Rockland — Maine citizens will decide in November whether to outlaw the use of bait, hounds and traps. Some consider these tactics cruel. A state biologist says this form of hunting is needed to control the bear population and prevent human-bear conflicts. There has never been a fatal bear attack on a human recorded in Maine.
