Researchers are worried about what may have happened to a black bear made famous when her birth in northeastern Minnesota was broadcast online. Hope, who had a radio collar, disappeared recently near Ely and researchers fear she may have been killed by a hunter. (AP Photo/The Duluth News Tribune, Clint Austin, File)
