The Trump Administration Wants to Make It Easier to Kill Baby Bears and Wolves

  • by: Care2 Team

In Alaska, you might soon be able to teach your children the wonder of the great outdoors by killing helpless bear cubs and wolf pups in their dens or mowing down swimming caribou from the comfort of your own motorboat.

The Trump administration wants to open the door to extreme hunting techniques of some of Alaska's most iconic animals. The proposal is an attempt to rollback a 2015 Obama administration regulation that banned the same practices.

Besides the horrific caribou slaughtering methods that would be permitted, the rollback would also allow hunters to "lure brown and black bears with bait, hunt black bears and their cubs using artificial lights, [...], and use dogs to hunt black bears."

The park service suggests that loosening hunting restrictions would boost opportunities for "sportsmen" wishing to take advantage of Alaska's bounty. But, in reality, it is just a disgusting push to make the cruel sport of hunting even more inhumane and barbaric.

Now, the public has 60 days to comment before the final decision is made.

Please sign the petition and tell the Department of the Interior that you don't want cruel extreme hunting techniques in our federal lands. Speak up now, while there is still time.
