MINNESOTA : No Bear Bagged in Make-A-Wish Hunt

May 30, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A teenager whose charity-funded hunting trip angered animal-rights activists failed to kill a bear in Alaska, a leader of the Make-A-Wish Foundation said. The hunting part of 17-year-old Erik Ness' trip ended over the weekend and he is enjoying fishing and sightseeing with his family, said Karla Blomberg, president of the foundation's Minnesota chapter. The chapter granted a $4,000 Alaskan hunting trip in January to Erik, who had a brain tumor removed last fall. "What we've been told is that Erik had a wonderful time," Blomberg said.
