Dear Members of the NC Wildlife Commission:
Please enter into the record, and consider my comments on the
proposed changes to the state’s black bear hunting rules.
someone with an interest in wildlife protection who believes that
needless violence against wildlife is something that should not be
expanded, I absolutely and without exception oppose any changes that
would allow extending the hunting season, increasing bag limits, and
shooting bears in a baited area.
Hunters already have
fifty-eight days to hunt black bears in North Carolina, and this is
fifty-eight days too many. Black bears are not a threat to a healthy
forest, to human safety, or to the well being of other wildlife
species, and killing them for recreation is something that the NC
Wildlife Commission should find shameful if it is to have us believe
that it works in the best interests of wildlife.
expanding hunting opportunities when the sport is mired in
irreversible attrition, the commission should be doing all it can to
protect native wildlife species and establish more opportunities for
wildlife watching – the most popular wildlife-related outdoor activity
in North Carolina and in all fifty states.
