CANADA’S New Provincial NDP B.C. Government to Ban Grizzly Bear Hunting

Stating public pressure the newly elected provincial British Columbia government has moved to ban grizzly bear hunting effective November 30th , 2017.

Current B.C. grizzly population is estimated at 15,000. Four thousand grizzlies were killed in the past 16 years when the previous Liberal government re-opened trophy hunting for these bears.

Not understood by the writer is why it is a good idea to kill something for sport or trophy collection purposes. Some research on this subject suggests that such big game hunters feel more manly during these killing endeavors therefore helping to correct any deficit they may feel in this regard, and they can then point to preserved body parts on display in their man-cave to prove this deficit correction!

Congratulations to the new government for ending this cruel, unproductive and wasteful hunting practice. The bears are happy!
