In the 28 states that allow bear hunting, bear baiting is banned in 18 of them. Bear-hunters leave food out for a bear and shoot it when it comes to eat. But the bait intended for bear, also attracts wolves. Wisconsin is one of the states

Hunters claim that the fundamental principle of hunting is "fair chase," but there is nothing fair about bear baiting. It is cruel and inhumane and cowardly. TY Cher signed and noted.

Signed. Why the heck should hunters be rewarded for bring hunting dogs to fight wolves at a bait station? Why do they even need dogs when they know where the wolves are? It seems like a legal way to hold a dog/wolf bloodsport - it should be illegal!

It's simply astounding - in article after article - the number of sadistic/sick people that live in our country/the world in general - - - to bait a bear and then shoot the helpless creature is nothing short of barbaric. It's too bad the law protects these people from what they justly deserve - - -
