NO! First there are an over supply of bears. 2nd people are getting killed by these animals and it will get worse as they have no fear of man. Bears are not toys to hg. Too many people are oblivious of the danger and think "how Cute". Until it gets messy then the hue and cry results.

Voted! The hunters who think it is is sporting to catch a bear in a cage trap or a snare are idiots.

Like all hunting IMO if the hunt is legal and the animal is used or food (not trophy) it is a right.

Like all rights they must be judicious in action and use.

I ad 450 lb bear in a tree last summer, he was relocated so I get having a huge predatory animal in a residential area as well as understand how many black bears we have,

As far as I am concerned, ALL hunting should be banned. The only good hunter is a dead hunter~~skin 'um and hang their hides on the wall, then let their heartless bodies rot. There's enough killing of animals in this world; we don't need gunslingers in the woods. Voted and Signed Petition. Thanks!!

Bear hunting should be made illegal in the States, in Canada as well as
in the rest of the World too.

No, bear hunting should not be banned. Bans can only happen on a state by state basis anyway since all wildlife that is not declared endangered falls under the jurisdiction of the state. (all songbirds except 3 are protected in the US.) Black bears are not endangered and should not ever be so if hunting them is strictly controlled and poachers kept under control though that is easier said than done. Cougars, bears, and wolves should all be hunted to a certain extent.

Voted to have bear hunting banned. The look on those vile and evil hunters is sickening. Humans are the problem and not the bears. Humans are taking over their habitat and then blame wildlife.
