Please sign and share this petition worldwide in an effort to urge British Columbia to put an end to grizzly bear hunting! Even though there is much controversy regarding trophy hunting of this near endangered animal, Canada still seems to allow the grizzly bear to be hunted and killed annually. The purpose of this petition is to ask the BC politicians to ban the hunt and kill of this at risk species.
The grizzly bear is an animal of special concern in Canada, similar to that of the polar bear. However, they don't seem to qualify for federally legislated conservation measures, despite the fact that their numbers are dwindling drastically. In the earlier 1900s, there was an estimated 35,000 grizzlies while there are less than 6,000 today because they are now considered a coveted prize for trophy hunters.
Currently, hunting the grizzly is like a sport for B.C. bear parts and trophies but is not sustainably managed. Recreationaly hunting is favored by many and we are attempting to ask B.C. politicians to ban the hunt and kill of the grizzly bears. Read full issue at http://www.vancouverobserver.com/news/grizzly-bear-population-risk-bc-liberal-government-aligns-trophy-hunters. These key liberal politicians in B.C. that we are targeting are said to be champions of hunting.
There is much controversy regarding hunting regulations and activities in Canada. Licenses should not be extended to anyone for recreational hunting of the grizzly bears. As policies expand, many have raised critical questions about the politics behind expanding access to bear hunting in the province. Help us in our efforts to get a ban on grizzly bear hunting by signing and sharing this petition worldwide and save this animal from harm and endangerment throughout Canada.
B. C. Politicians & Government Officials - We encourage you to place a clear ban on hunting and killing the grizzly bears and not provide any licenses to anyone to harm and kill these animals for any reason. Implement and enforce this law and ban, protecting the existence of this beautiful animal that is dwindling in numbers for the mere sport of it! Ban the trophy hunt and kill of the grizzly bear.
