Ontario, Canada recently voted to reinstate its annual spring bear hunt, lifting a ban that had been in place since 1999. The cull will result in the deaths of thousands of bears

People move into bear territory and then complain that bears are roaming around. Many times they draw the bears by not securing their rubbish correctly. Preventative measures should be taken before taking the bears life. I don't think this is done in most situations. Signed.

You ARE on a roll! all your first posts seem to be up on the Front Page!! Good start!

Nature is way better at establishing a healthy balance than is humankind ... we only realise that eco-balance has been knocked out when we observe the resulting damage (and then, only if we are observant and care).

How many of the human-bear encounters have taken place when humans have encroached in bear territory?? Either passing through, or by expanding human habitation into former bear domaines?

There needs to be a better way to control the wildlife population than allowing HUMANS to destroy it. Let nature control it naturally. There is not an overun of bears and they keep to themselves. STOP THIS IMMEDIATELY please

N&S. Is there anything more spectacular than seeing bears in the wild, horses in the wild, wolves rush past you where you stand out in the wilderness. The feeling you get is so crazily powerful. Oh while you are there you know that this is their home and that you are only a visitor in this magnificent landscape.

Noted and signed For 15 years they have had a ban on the kill of the bears, and now they are going to start to kill thousands of them. It is mating season and many of the bears will have cubs which will probably be orphaned due to this kill. Every spring when the bears come out of hibernation they are hungry and no food is to be found as the berries are not out yet, lakes are still frozen and fish are hard to get to. The bears end up coming into the towns and rummaging through garbages in search of food. Once their food is plentiful again you don't see the bears in towns. People who live in these areas no this to happen every spring so I don't know why they want this to happen all over again. Shameful

I spent about an hour this morning watching a mama bear graze on clover while her very young babies played around her. Why do some believe that they have a right to kill other animals? Because they can? That's not good enough. We share this planet with other beings, or they would not be here. Humans have such a long way to go as a species.

ya know, I never would have expressed it openly but another very outspoken member said it first and I agree. If anything needs to be culled, or at least have its population halted, its humans.. What a horrible greedy species we are... There IS enough for everyone and everything if we STOP WHAT WE ARE DOING NOW.
Here in FL, there are more and more bears cruising the neighborhoods...one was even seen lounging in a hammock, TOO CUTE!! (check it out):
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/31/bear-in-a-hammock-daytona-beach_n_5424012.html

Up in Rochester, NY there was a baby roaming on my Moms street... That is very suburban with only patches of woods here and there..That bear went a LONG way..I grew up there and NEVER saw one and I used to hang in the woods..what is this all saying? WE ARE DESTROYING THEIR HOMES..
and now some idiots want to murder them for fun..I say take all the hunters and let them have a hunger games event. Maybe they will GET the fear and cruelty of what they consider fun.

Yes, you're absolutely right. We are the ones that are invading their homes, depleting their natural habitats, and taking away their food sources. Even the creeks are either drying up, or industrial spillage is killing the fish and water fowl. There is SO much vacancy in suburban America - any city. We're at about 50% occupancy on "business" strip malls/multi-suite offices, and yet more are being built. Farm land is disappearing oh, so fast. We much make more folks that are 'in influence' to stop/curtail urban or suburban sprawl to wake up and realize what they are creating. Thanks for bringing this to our forethoughts. jan.
