Heres an incident to ponder.
Locally, there was a sow griz, 2 cubs, and a young 3-4 year old male griz hanging about along one of the secondary hiways. 2 days ago, someone shot the young male, right on the side of the road, took the head,hide and front quarters and left the carcass,
It was 100% legal, but would you consider it ethical and/or responsible given the location?
These bears had been hanging about feeding in the area for quite some time, and had become quite popular with wildlife photographers and the general public. Seeing that hunting does get a lot of bad press anyway, i can see this generating even more.
Whats your folks take on something like this?
