A debate is surfacing on whether to resume a hunt on grizzly bears, at least for problem bruins in southwestern Alberta.

The grizzly recovery plan was put in place after studies found there were fewer than 700 grizzlies left in Alberta, leading the government to declare the species threatened.
But the population of grizzly bears in southwestern Alberta appears to be healthy, reports the Herald.

I voted no. I have been to SW AB many times, never seen a grizzly once. Pretty sure there are more people in SW AB than there are bears and nobody is talking about hunting them.

Hd a black bear near my home once though.. it was just passing through, kind of neat to see, a bit concerned for my critters, but we cannot assume that nature does not have a right to survival just because humans want their space.

it's never time for a grizzly bear hunt, or any other hunt. besides, there are more problem humans than problem bruins.

I didn't vote on this. There used to be grizzlies from the Northern Rockies all the way to the Sierra Madres at on time. 700 bears is a sustainable population and if that is the case then I lean toward a negative opinion on hunting them. They aren't a problem to rural areas at least for the most part anyway. Treat the bear with caution and respect their territory and normally you won't have any problems.

No, No, NO!! This is NOT the answer!! Killing these majestic beautiful creatures is not the answer to this issue we have ultimately created! There are other options available and the government needs to explore other options to create a co~existence with these creatures. Killing them just because we've been taking their land and home is NOT acceptable! Demand the government and wildlife officials explore and invest in other options for the sake of our ecosystem, our future, the future of these awesome creatures and for the future of our children and those to come. Voted No!
