Default just the bear facts

Taken from https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_list&c=108 click to read the whole thing, its worth while

Quote:
There are many in our society who believe the life of an animal has equal or greater value than that of a human. I disagree. A bear is a wild animal, that when not threatening human life, is a wonderful sight. However, when I encounter bears that act aggressively by popping their teeth, woofing, swinging their head from side to side, charging, etc. I shoot them. I do not give them a prolonged chance to kill my wife, children, myself or any one that is with me. When I encounter bears (which I do several times per year) that run at my sight or smell, they are safe from me because I know I am safe from them. When they show aggression to humans, it is irresponsible to let them live as they will eventually permanently harm or kill someone. I don’t care that our governmental wild life agencies are protecting bears. They are generally misguided in this tactic. The notion that bears are a spiritual, magical life form that has value over human life, is a point of view that not only comes from the typical tree hugger groups/mindset, but it is coming from various fish and game agencies, more and more often. I choose to protect human life over animal life, period. The notion that bears were here before us and therefore have rights to maul us, is not only untrue, but even if it was true, I am here NOW and assert my right to be so.

Orangello should have a nice response to that. I eagerly await his comments.

I agree 100% that an aggressive bear should be put down. Some American Indians saw the bear as a god. None the less, if a bear attacked an Indian the bear was killed. Yes, the Indians felt great sorrow for the bear but taking his life was necessary. Why should we see the killing of a bear any differently?

I am reminded of a Heinlein quote about the environmentalists of his day that is kinda apropos to the discussion at hand:

Quote:

The obvious contradiction lies in their choice of words, which imply that Man and his artifacts are not part of "Nature" — but beavers and their dams are. But the contradictions go deeper than this prima-facie absurdity. In declaring his love for a beaver dam (erected by beavers for beavers' purposes) and his hatred for dams erected by men (for the purposes of men) the Naturist reveals his hatred for his own race — i.e., his own self-hatred.
In the case of "Naturists" such self-hatred is understandable; they are such a sorry lot. But hatred is too strong an emotion to feel toward them; pity and contempt are the most they rate.
As for me, willy-nilly I am a man, not a beaver, and H. sapiens is the only race I have or can have. Fortunately for me, I like being part of a race made up of men and women — it strikes me as a fine arrangement — and perfectly "natural" Believe it or not, there were "Naturists" who opposed the first flight to old Earth's Moon as being "unnatural" and a "despoiling of Nature."

when you are in areas that have bears, you have moved a few steps down the food chain. most species of bears have no natural predators.

unless your name is Grizzly Adams, best to stick to a stuffed teddy bear if you want one for a pet!

Why stop at bears?

Bears are capable of great violence, I agree. I would also argue this is mostly instinctual.

Some humans, on the other hand, CHOOSE to do evil. They should also be "put down."

'Gello couldn't have written that. It said in the article that if the bear showed no aggression and walked off, he'd let it walk off. 'Gello would never do that. ALL bears would be shot if it were 'Gello.

Unfortunately a lot of PETA hardcore have infiltrated the fish and game departments. Others have become "advisers" to politicians and lobbyists. It is a stealth attack. I am in agreement with the original post. A wild or even domestic animal should be put down if it threatens humans. This is not to say we should go out and deliberately provoke them.
