Both grizzly and black bears need protection, as there should be no hunting or killing of bears, neither spring nor fall.
The Yukon Department of Environment’s proposal for a 30-metre buffer zone, for grizzlies only, will do nothing to protect them. This proposal is smoke and mirrors! The department needs to take a stand for wildlife, not for humans who want to kill them.
Bears are not objects (“resources”) for human desires only, they have interests of their own. They deserve protection and not exploitation.
Ban the destruction of both grizzly and black bears. It’s the humane, ethical thing to do.
