38 organizations against grizzly meat hunt

Environmental groups are voicing their opinions that there should be no grizzly hunt at all- not even for meat.

Activists are saying that the meat hunt is really the trophy hunt in disguise and that will result in the pointless death of countless bears.

38 environmental and animal welfare organizations, along with wildlife-based businesses and activists have presented a signed open letter opposing the hunt asking for the complete ban on hunting grizzlies throughout BC.

The Open Letter says there has never been significant hunting of grizzly bears for meat in BC, and they were previously classified as non-game animals.

“People don’t travel hundreds or thousands of kilometres, pay tens of thousands of dollars, and risk their lives shooting at grizzly bears to put meat on the table,” the Open Letter states. “They largely do it only for trophies and sport. Even if they have to leave the head, hide and claws behind, they take away trophy videos, photographs and bragging rights. The bears will still be killed for sport”.
