the organs of black bears, or any animal for that matter, will not cure your ailments. that is why there are doctors and hospitals. this mumbo jumbo witchcraft or whatever you call it is not going to resolve your problem. the only result from killing and dismembering the bears is just that. this is not magic, this is the murder of innocent animals. your ignorance is mind-boggling.

Noted, Signed & Shared! The sale of black bear parts should have been made illegal many years ago! It is obvious that the hunting lobby is fighting this law as they not only get a trophy out of their killing but then they can sell the bears parts for quite a profit! The black bear population is really dwindling in this country and we must pass this bill to protect them before they become extinct in the wild!

I signed, and it was recorded!

Thirty years ago, I can remember watching a documentary on Black Bears or on Yellowstone National Park—I cannot remember which one it was covering. BUT … the documentary stated that six new Black Bear cubs in Yellowstone National Park—a park covering acreage in mostly Wyoming and in Montana and Idaho—was considered a GOOD YEAR!!!

Thirty years ago, that was not a large number, and it is not a large one now. Black Bears were scarce in Yellowstone back then, and they might still be. I have no idea if their populations have increased proportionally to the tri-state park since then or not.

This has been going on so long I'm shocked
there are any bears left alive at all. It must be
my mood today but may all the people who kill,
sell & use bear organs as an aphrodisiac have
their organs turn black, rot and fall off. And I mean
that in the nicest way possible.

Gop T-party member Cat Scratch Fever Ted Nugent was recently given two years probation for poaching a black bear in Alaska to sell it's organs. I think he got away with a slap on the wrist. He also hunts for deer with a machine gun. He is proof certain people should NOT be allowed to own fire arms.
