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.
