Bear Hunts Could Be Outlawed In This Region… Are You OK With That?

When activists (greenies or whichever) score a win somewhere, they try to bring that same win somewhere else.

When activists (greenies or whichever) score a win somewhere, they try to bring that same win somewhere else.

So, chances are… someone will try to bring this policy here.

In one Canadian province, government officials are outlawing Trophy Hunts for Bears.

They’re also looking to outlaw the Bear Hunt, and like most government officials, they are hoping to back up their position with an opinion poll.

B.C.’s NDP government announced Monday that the province will ban trophy hunting for grizzly bears and will completely ban the hunt of grizzlies in the Great Bear Rainforest as of Nov. 30.

But as Postmedia reporter Larry Pynn wrote while the trophy hunt will end, hunting for meat may continue outside the Great Bear Rainforest.

The province will close “loopholes” by forbidding a meat hunter from possessing the paws, head, and hide of a grizzly to ensure trophy hunts are not conducted under the guise of a meat hunt, he added. —Vancouver Sun

If you want to have your voice heard in the poll — it doesn’t ask address! — feel free to jump in here.

At last check, it was an even split.

If you have any bear-hunting friends, feel free to give him a heads-up!
