Take action now!

Dear Friends of Wildlife


Premier Kathleen Wynne's decision to allow a Spring Bear Hunt in Ontario will result in the death of hundreds of small bear cubs just like this one.

Attracting hungry adult bears with food bait when they are coming out of a long hibernation and easily shot by a hunter hiding in a nearby tree blind is a cowardly act made worse by the small dependent cubs that are left to die a slow death of starvation. Sometimes hounds are used to track and tree bears for hunters to shoot. Wounded bears fall to the ground where the hounds attack them. Hounds may also attack cubs that are stranded on the ground without their mothers.

You and I can make a difference in stopping this morally-indefensible hunt. If you live in Ontario:

  • Add your name to the Sign-On letter. Even if you have signed other petitions or sent a letter, please send this one as it will go to all Ontario MPP's, sending a strong message that there is province-wide opposition to a Spring Bear Hunt.
     
  • Make the letter your own by changing the subject line, first paragraph or adjusting the order of others.
     
  • Second, send a response to the Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR) consultation. The comment can be as brief as saying you are 'strongly opposed on moral grounds to hunting bears in the spring when they are caring for very young dependent cubs' or you can add a different point or two taken from the Sign-On letter.

Please forward this to family and friends who share your love of wildlife and use social media to get the word out, particularly among young people, because we know they care.
