PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION: NO BEAR HUNTING IN NEVADA.
Bears are beautiful, intelligent and sociable animals. They do no harm to people unless challenged and scared, in fact they would prefer to avoid humans.
PLEASE do not start a bear hunt in NV. It is dangerous for people and pets as well.
(This is my comment on the petition)
Why do some people have to KILL any creature that breathes? So evil.

We have encroached on their territory to such a degree, their plight is at an increasing risk. I wish I had the answer, but with gun happy lunatics, who want to express their machismo, by killing our animal inhabitants, bears are in dire straights.

I love bears and I just can't believe the unbelievable cruelty that is inflicted on them.,(bear baiting, bear bile farms,bear pits in Japanese zoos, bear hunts etc.)I've never forgotten the first time I saw a picture of a bear in one of the dreadful cages where they can't move and they keep them like that for years and years.It haunted me for such a long time after I 'd seen that picture ,I could not stop thinking about it. I could not get my head around the fact that any human being could do that to a defenceless animal and not see how wrong it was.Lastly to the vile piece of shit who fired the arrow into the bear, I hope one day someone will do the same to you.See how you like it you cowardly bastard.To the State of Nevada please don't kill your bears.They have as much right to be there as we do. All they want to do is live their lives safely in the woods.Let them be and if you have to shoot your guns take up clay pidgeon shooting.Now that is a sport.

This is sooo sad and absolutely horrific!!! I am sick of seing people evil bastards killing a and huntinmg bears!!!!! For bile or as a burger!! ItS PATHETIC and these people should be ashamed!! bears are sooo sweet and loving, this needs to be BANNED IMMEDIEATELY!!! PLease ban all trophy bear hunting, all poaching, all bear hunting seasons IMMEDIATELY!!! how can this be something fun to do?? KILLING A NOTHER LIFE IS FUN TO YOU GUY??? u bastards are the worst thing on earth!!! THIS NEEDS TO STOP AND IM SERIOUSLY VERY UPSET AND ANGRY, JUST LIKE MANY OTHER GOOD PEOPLE.


MOTHERS AND FATHERS OUT THERE ------

How can the stupid pubic sit at home and listen to a gun shot?? a human mother at home cradles her baby son or daughter, whilst she listens to a bear mother being shot and her babies being satbbed for fun and food - only few metres or a distance away... how can her maternal instincts stay quiet?? and im not even a mother and I understand the feelings of the bears...

a human man teaches his son how to play football, how to garden, how to stand up to bullies at school... a male bear teaches his son how to survive, how to find fish and climb to the safety of the trees....

How can a human man kill a male bear or his family?? Does he not understand that this father is doing his job and he has no right to take their life??? Does he not feel that the male bear was showing his son how to hunt for fish or climb a tree?

Now the male bears have to also teach their cubs...
Son, we have to tread, breath and eat carefully... we have humans on our backs,, this might be the last minutes we spend together as father / son/daughter .. mother / son/ daughter etc...
What happened to the word mankind...
Man is really not kind after all... they should be ashamed...
