Canada’s British Columbia Province Bans Grizzly Bear Hunting

British Columbia on Monday banned all grizzly bear hunting in the western Canadian province with immediate effect, expanding on its existing ban on trophy hunting.

In August, the provincial government had said it would end trophy hunting of the bears but allow hunting for meat.

Consultations with First Nations, other stakeholder groups and the public in recent months showed that “it is abundantly clear that the grizzly hunt is not in line with their values,” said Doug Donaldson, the province’s minister of forests and lands, in a statement on Monday.

The Power of monthlies: We currently have about $13k in monthlies. If we could raise that number to $15k, it’d cut a week to ten days off our FReepathon time. Raising it to $18k would reduce it by two weeks or more. Anything over $20k and our FReepathons would complete in 30 days or less!

If you love using FR, please consider signing up as a monthly donor today and help get FR on a sound financial footing as well as helping to shorten or even end FReepathons! Thank you very much for your loyal support.

Lettuce make sure the parliament (?) tells the grizzly bears of this decision. In person.

The Indians don’t like hunting?

Hahahahahahaha!

Go look for game on their reservations. There isn’t any.

They just don’t like Caucasians.

Reminds me of an old defense of poaching from the middle 1600s updated to today.

I raise sheep, the bears eat them.

When I defend myself I am arrested,

Because a GREAT MAN who is above raising sheep,

Would be in need of grizzly bears.

(ten years later…): British Columbia grizzly bear population starving, having eaten everything — and everyone — they could chase down.

Only somebody who knows nothing about BC could write that one.

You’ve never been to BC, that’s apparent.

First Nations = Indians.

How could Indians say that hunting bear was “not in line with our values”? They’ve been hunting bears for a thousand effing years!

Indians hunt 24/7; like going to church for those folks; and they figure if there’s a drop in game numbers must be caused by white men and sometimes they are right.

Indians I know here in Alaska shoot every bear and all the wolves they can, otherwise the moose go extinct.

Yep.

Sure have.

You want to make any other mistakes?

Then you would know the reservations in BC are teeming with game of every sort.

I don’t know about grizzlies, but black bears are good eating….

To: Mariner

I would think that somebody as knowledgeable as you are about BC would know they aren’t called “reservations” there.

That’s two mistakes.

Feel free to keep making them so I can point them out to everyone.

So more people will be mauled and killed.

Well if that’s what the injuns want, all of society must obey…or something.

This will not end well.

We have black bears here, not grizzlies, but the results of a ban will be the same as ours.

Florida banned black bear hunting until just a few years ago, when we up to our ears in black bears………………..

Ludicrous.

You act as if the First Nations have eradicated the game stocks in BC.

Not even close to true.

And I’m wondering why you even made the claim.
