Washington state’s Fish and Wildlife Commission just voted 4-4 to suspend a proposed 2022 spring bear-hunting season.

Putting the hunt on hold is a big win for wildlife, said the Center’s Sophia Ressler: It will let the state better study the risks of hunting bears in spring.

“I hope the commission listens to the majority of folks in the state, who want these cruel spring hunts to finally come to an end,” said Sophia.
