Maine communities could become more dangerous without bear baiting, hounding, trapping

bear_1721930cBlack bears are becoming a national menace as well as a serious threat to public safety and private property, and exacerbating this problem is the Humane Society of the United States and its radical, Pollyanna belief that bears can be managed without the use of hunters.

The D.C.-based Humane Society roams our country using its vast millions looking for opportunities to promote its anti-hunting agenda. Now the group has landed in Maine with the November bear referendum; as a result, Maine could join the growing list of states struggling to prevent bear-human encounters.

According to a recent report in the Wall Street Journal, the American black bear population has continued to thrive in recent years, growing to 850,000. This is an astonishing fact given the populations of the world’s largest predators have declined. For example, the combinedworldwide populations of lions, polar bears, gray wolves and tigers is 224,000.
