[Video] BAN Trophy Hunting of Grizzly Bears

By Dr. Andrew Jones

This isn’t necessarily a pet health issue, but it’s definitely an animal rights issue.

There are somewhere between 6000-15000 Grizzly Bears left.

Over 10000 have been killed by Trophy Hunters.

Over 90% of the residents of B.C. want this to stop.

The Government won’t listen, and continues to support these hunters..

I encourage you to watch this short video, and let your voice be heard


Protect grizzly bears by banning the trophy hunt in BC

Bears Matter

Over 10,000 grizzly bears have been killed by trophy hunters between 1976 and 2012. More than one third (1/3) of grizzly bears killed by trophy hunters are female. In the Spring hunt female bears may be shot due to mistaken identity leaving their tiny 2-5 month old cubs to perish.

A report by the Centre for Responsible Tourism (CREST) in collaboration with Stanford University highlighted that bear viewing produces far more jobs and revenue than the grizzly bear trophy hunt, which costs more for the government to manage than it generates back in revenue. There is simply no scientific, ethical or economic rationale for the trophy hunt.

    Simply a deplorable, disgusting practise. Only a coward or a morally bankrupt person would participate in such a low-life activity.

    Trophy hunting is done by the entitled jackasses. Maybe it’s Hunger Games time for them

    It’s very sad, some people just love to kill animals with feeling no remorse! I strongly believe it should be ban. If the ban goes trough and I hope it does and someone violates the ban… deserves severe penelty!

    I will never understand how these people get a thrill taking a beautiful animals life to hang on their wall..They need to see what it would feel like being hunted down.. Morally detached from any love of wild life I assume..

    Humans continue to aerial hunt wolves, kill elephants for ivory, and kill bears – ALL IN THE NAME OF SPORT. As long as hunters bring in revenue for the State, it will continue. Until enough money is shown to be depleted BECAUSE OF HUNTING – such as loss of tourism, or until more money is shown to be going into the State, BY NON-HUNTERS, this kind of behaviour (Sport Hunting) will progress until our wildlife only exists in zoos. How sad for the Planet Earth. And as for stopping the hunters? They will search the globe to find the very last animals to kill and hang on their living room walls.

    When the Government of Canada permits the most vulnerable of life – baby seals, completely defenceless out there on the ice, to be bludgeoned to death with no though of the terrible suffering that the mother has to endure, as all mothers do at the loss of an infant; when it ravages the land and atmosphere with projects such as the tar sands and also the forests which undoubtedly repair at least some of the damage of the former; when Native populations continue to be marginalised and robbed of their lands and sacred places, ‘the disappeared’ not important enough for meaningful investigation; when they sell Apache and Tomahawk helicopters to a ruthless government abroad which lead, among other things to the slaughter of blameless infants, women and men and the destruction of their cities. In this insulting Native American Populations in the use of tribe titles and symbols, all in the name of obscene profit, one would say’ what chance does the Grizzly Bear have??? This government is disgracing the Name of Canada – VOTE THEM OUT A.S.A.P.

    This killing of wildlife of all types needs to be stopped. The government should not be profiting from this “sport.”

    I totally agree this should be stopped as well as the dolphins and seal killing.
    Just think of what that hunter did to that poor Lion that he speared and killed later after the poor lion was lured off it home.

    The thought of the heads and necks of animals, stuffed and stuck on walls, tells me that the people responsible for the killing are the dregs of humanity. Trophy, or so-called sports hunters must be bereft of any feelings (except for their own twisted needs). “Aren’t I the most skillful human? I just killed a
    beautiful wild animal. Oh, it had babies? Too bad.”

    I’ve heard about these awful people – all the right killing gear, all the right
    clothing etc. Pathetic fools. Hey killers – if you are reading this – wake up to yourselves and help animals instead. Can’t you find a hobby which is constructive? Do you REALLY enjoy causing death? Wake up! Leave the animals alone please – they have a right to live – just as you do.
    causing death?

    As I read the headline of this article I got an image of all the wildfires that are now sweeping our planet.

    The horror we feel as homes and people are threatened or killed and wiped out.

    The slaughter of any wild animal for sport resembles, the violence and destructiveness of this element.

    No difference really. Except governments have the power and control to prevent this atrocity of man and his misdirected ego.

    Regain the conscience humanity had once a longtime ago in history.

    It is morally Wrong Wrong Wrong.

    Wake up – live from a heart centered space and remember we are all entitled to live on this planet.

    Take responsibility – its a new world opportunity. The old ways end in an abyss for all living on this beautiful earth.

    I am an animal lover and it pains me when I see God’s creatures hunted /killed for sport and other selfish reasons. This must be stopped immediatrly.

    Those who hunt for trophy have excess cash in their pockets but shallow mind to find something useful as a hobby that would benefit them as well as society. They spend their money to shoot animal, serving them as a live target. Something that people with morals and ethics will never understand and will stand up against. It is disgusting that in this century there is still not law to protect animals from such practices.
