American black bears are the only bears indigenous to Nevada. And with fewer than 300 black bears gracing the state of Nevada, the Board of Wildlife Commissioners has nonetheless launched the state's first hunt against them, slated to begin in August 2011

Letter sent:

I am writing to state my opposition to any tormenting or slaughter of bears in Nevada.

Such cruelty as having dogs chase bears up trees & separating cubs from mother bears so that they starve is unacceptable. This barbaric hunt puts bears, dogs, and humans at risk — for the misguided glee of a handful of trophy hunters. Sadly, the animals are the ones suffering instead of the killers.

I urge you to do all you can to end these hunts immediately.
Thank you for your time.

Signed, I am ashamed. I spent about 18 years in Nevada.

noted and letter sent. If this goes ahead, shame on Nevada. They are hardly abundant in their numbers, and they have a right to live peacefully in their habitat. It sickens me to think of the fear and loss and bloody deaths that await them if this is not reconsidered and stopped.
