I know this topic means nothing or very little to alot of people on here, but it really irks me!!
So two years ago in Alberta, which I live they shut down the Grizz hunting season. They had heard rumors that there were no bears left! Are you kidding me?! So anyways they got hassled enough fromt he so called "Do gooders" around here and they shut the season down for 5 years well they count the numbers. Why not count numbers with a limited season still open?
So anyways we have had a lot more Grizz attackes then there ever has been around here. Which tells me something, they are far to many bears and not enough feed. I live in the foothills, not far the the rockies at all. Two weeks ago a 47 year old avid hunter was eaten by a sow and her three cubs. But guess what?! He wasn't in the rockies, he was in a heavily populated acreage community!! So not only are these bears moving into the town limits but her three cubs now have the taste for human blood and have discoved that humans are a source of food, you know they willl kill again. This time will it be a little boy or girl out walking their dog?
