Urgent: Save Bear Cubs from Becoming Orphans

Published 02/21/14

In 1999, Ontario’s provincial government stopped the spring bear hunt, which allowed hunters to bait bears as they came out of hibernation, or chase them with hounds and shoot them. While females were supposed to be protected, they were often shot, leaving dependent cubs to die slowly.

The current government has reinstated a spring hunt—even though independent studies and research by their own bear biologists show that this tactic does NOT reduce conflicts with bears.

There will be an Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR) assessment, but it ends March 7! Please send comments (but in a very specific way, if they are to be considered). Click the "Read More" link below to see our action alert email that contains a sample comment that you can use.
