The Baxter State Park Authority on Tuesday voted unanimously to protect the live
The Baxter State Park Authority on Tuesday voted unanimously to protect the lives of all creatures in the 81 percent of the 202,000-acre park that has been designated as a wildlife sanctuary. University of Maine assistant professor Dan Harrison had proposed a research project at Baxter State Park that would have resulted in the death of 50 percent of the shrews trapped. Trustees Ray Owen, Charles Gadzick and Andrew Ketterer voted in July to allow the research, but Restore: The Maine Woods asked for a stay of the trapping and reconsideration of the vote.
