In one week, Sept. 9 – October 13, will start the slaughter of 4,750 black bears, mostly cubs less than 2 years old, over unlimited packs of dogs and bait.

These bears will be run to exhaustion in this late summer heat, as they have been all summer ( for the entertainment of “families”) and when they climb the trees they love thinking themselves safe, they will be shot with multiple arrows or gunshots and fall 60-70 foot to the dogs below.

Then the “hunters” who have followed the radio-collared dogs in their trucks, will “let the dogs have some fun” with the dying or wounded bear, attacking the bear, and then take home a baby bear rug for their man cave to their “glory”.

Children 10-11 years old are in this “game” and pay $7 to kill a bear.  $49 for grown men and women to enjoy this killing.  More bears are killed in Wisconsin every year than anywhere in the country.

This lady was said to have “harvested” this black bear!

And the state killing agency is proud of it.  26,500 black bears, peaceful, frightened families of bears, have been killed in the past 6 years – leaving cubs who need their mothers to den the first year, to wander until they starve or freeze.

Come and join us for a great hunt in Wisconsin.

109,000 people pay to be in the lottery to kill our bears and 10,600 will be out killing over the next five weeks.We invite you to share your opinion whether the slaughter of black bears in Wisconsin should be stopped? Please vote and leave your comments at the bottom of this page:

this is a lie half the people who get a tag dont even kill one. we do not shot mothers with cubs or two year old bears. there is nothing such as the state kiling agency.the dnr controls this so take your whiny ass to them.

Dave Shepherd

Obviously the 5% who voted no are like the inbreds posing with their "trophies"… And as Laura Osborne so rightly pointed out, woul;dn't be an absolute rib-tickler to find out that the scumbags that got such a kick out of their "fun" had actually been ripped to shreds by these glorious bears – I know I'd be cheering loudly if we were lucky enough for that to happen!!!

Laura Osborne

Anyone who enjoys killing any living animal needs to be kept an eye on – if they enjoy killing any animal, why not a human? Also they must be sick sick people – and teaching children to enjoy hunting and killing is setting up a whole heap of trouble for the future. Lets all hope these scumbag killers get hunted by the bears and ripped to bits – seems fair to me.

Hunters don’t “enjoy” killing the animal, they are not mutilating it for fun, they are simply doing the leg work to put food on the table instead of paying to have animals that have been caged its entire life killed for them. Not every hunt will be successful but no self respecting hunter will take an uncertain shot and intentionally cause the animal to suffer unnecessarily. They want to make as humane a shot as possible, unlike the cold hearted monster you seem to label every hunter as. (you might as well hate wolves, foxes, cats, dogs, and every other… Read more »

Anyone who enjoys hurting or killing an animal is a potential psychopath for sure! Those hill-billys out in Winsconsin are complete & utter nutters who enjoy killing all the animals, especially bears & wolves! Sick bastards need to be stopped before there are no animals left in the world, just horrible fucking people!!!!!

Marie Christine Beausse

Assassins, sauvage sans vergogne vous né méritez rien !

Delbert Smith

If there are to many people in the world, it is an easy fix all the Animal rights people eat the barrel if a gun, jump off a tall bridge, hang yourself. and that will help.

Steve Johnson

typical Canadians.

Ursula Voß

Such people should remove the children – this is the zoom growing murderers. To some must become severely punished.

Amy Garofalo

All hunting should be stopped!

Jesse Shatto

All hunting should be stopped hunting is for cowards period.

Stuart Ong

I didn't think the Canadians could be so uncivilised, taking children on the hunt is really unthinkable and to think so many people enter into this lottery to go out to kill a bear.! What has happened to these people that they think killing an animal is alright?

Diane Beatley Danielson

respect all life

Janet May Fink

Leave the animals alone. Respect all life.

Chris Dtrick

It's simple. We shouldn't be hurting animals. They have families just like us.

Sophia Wilson

WHY, such a lovely creature. Shows a cruel disregard for wildlife and ature. Horrible people with a kill-lust.

All hunting and killing 🙁

I did a petition to introduce a course called COMPASSION in the schools. I have closed it at 6200 signatures, but hesitant to present it as I don't like our present Minister of Education. Maybe I should present it to someone else.

Worrying sign of psychotic behaviour

Mary O'Toole-Dwyer

PLEASE STOP THE SLAUGHTER OF OUR WILDLIFE NOW. THIS IS NOT SPORT THIS IS INHUMANE….

Ankie Ernst

STUPID HUMANS STOP THE SLAUGHER !!!

Sally Gates

93% say stop killing bears . Where does the majority ever rule in this freaking country? An atrocity. Too much killing of our wildlife and government don't step in to stop it. It is a farce and a corruption and this country represents no greatness any more. We need to hang our head in shame when the majority vote gets ignored.

Guyda Pires

Stop a tous ces barbaries laissez les vivre

Philippe Vingerder

bande de malade aller en enfer

Arianna Kirkpatrick

Barbaric and cruel!! and to teach children to kill just for fun is wrong. We should teach children respect for all sentient beings.

Eva Schorer

How Barbaric our species is that they find amusement in inflicting pain and suffering to other living things for not other rteason than to fluff up their egos. Humanity is not humane. These activities speak of our shallow and cruel these people are. Maybe they should get educated and pull themselves out of their ignorance by understanding the lives of animals that share our planet. These animals have better ethics than the people that brutally destroy them as they don't perform such barbaric and digusting actions. SHAME ON YOU. How would you feel if the same fate befalls on you… Read more »

Hunting is barbaric and only morons and cowards kill. There is no difference between killing an animal or a human who is also an animal except evil.

Mary Alice Petch-Pollard

Voted yes of course …. and shared ! and I think Peggy, we all know where this blood money goes – the polls are a good tool to show a general conception and as for the photos … if they reach just one person who’s mind is changed about ‘hunting’ then the job is done because they will then reach out to other people who perhaps have never given these animals or the subject a second thought ! Children learn from what they see. We need to set an example of truth and action. – Howard Rainer, Taos Pueblo-Creel (2012)

Ils sont possédes ces gens,c'est pas possible,je ne comprends pas que enlever une vie soit un plaisir,ça me dépasse.

Kathy Sims

It's always SCREW the enviroment and EVERYTHING in it.
IT'S ALWAYS ABOUT THE $ and they there are no end to the Arsehats buying into it!

Patty Botana Escalera

I have never felt what it's like to hunt an animal. It makes me sick to my stomach that men, women, boys and girls love to hunt. It's so cruel and permanent.

Peggy Dietrich

Sorry, FOW, I really hate your stupid polls. Like your photos on your emails but not these stupid questions. By the way…all hunting in Wisconsin – bear, wolves even mourning doves is a cave by Gov Scott Walker to sportsmen groups who donate money to his campaign.

Iain Gibson

Hunting is a sad, pitiful activity, and I fear for the psychological state of those involved in it. It's doubly sad to see these people passing on their psychopathic traits to their children.

Nancy O'Neal

Talk about a no brainer. Arrogence personified and cowardly cruely considered in this proposition. Who subscribes to those traits? Only the people this world would be better off without.

Maria Manuela Lopes

Disgusting . Usem o vosso dinheiro para ensinarem os vossos filhos a não serem como vocês.

Paula Rock

The slaughter of any species is just wrong., especially females with babies. What's wrong with you people. Have you no humanity!!

Anyonebut-Harper

Bunch of inbreds! No compassion. If you must cull you do with with compassion. Only people who enjoy this are sick in the head, and have a desire to kill.

Anyonebut-Harper

Delbert Smith your not a very compassionte person! This is not hunting this is slaughtering. All hunters will make the same excuse as you have, people do not fall for it anymore. No animal should die this way, you sick

Karen Lyons Kalmenson

if you want to hunt, build a time macine and go back to the stone age!!!!

David Milsom

If a cull is necessary (?) then it should be done as humanely as possible.

Newton Earl Cook

It is the taking ople in the state and federal agencies who dedicate their lives to rpreserving and managing our wild haibitats.of man out of the equation as a hunter/predator as has evolved over eons that is "not natural" as many in the urbanized and Bambi mind set do not understand….Bears will become overpopulated without man's natural presence…and then the dominate male bears will begin to kill the younger males and cubs…a gruesome death of being ripped apart…to protect their territory…too often the females fleeing to protect their cubs and the younger males end up dead on the roads or… Read more »

awful women!

Joan Dabulewicz

Delbert Smith I live in Africa. Read MANY books in my youth about hunters. My husband makes no bones about the fact that he also enjoyed hunting in his youth but the world is a changing place and we have to do our best to preserve what we have. We have a BIG Rhino problem here. As I pointed out culling is unfortunately a necessary evil due to the lack of space for the wildlife. I have and NEVER will whine about Bambi and Thumper I have lived VERY close to animal reserves. We don't have bears here or tigers… Read more »

People killing animals, people do eat bear, it is not a greasy meat, the fat on a bear is under the skin and above the meat. its a dark meat and take easily to being seasoned and smoked. This does not show a lack if intelligence at all. It shows a responsibility to wildlife, how much money has been raised to truly help wildlife? Hunting provides jobs thousands of jobs. Not some city slicker sitting on their butts and whining about Bambi and Thumper. But people who do understand true wildlife management Look at the decline in elephants in Kenya.… Read more »

i agree with all Joan Dabulewicz has written

Hilary Morrison

Yes of course.

Joan Dabulewicz

Culling because of an explosion in the numbers of a particular animal can sometimes be a necessary evil, not liked by many but humans are not going to move aside for any animal. BUT delebrate slaughtering to appease hunters who kill for the sake of killing in any way that suits them is complete and utter rubbish!! And in today's world shows a lack of intelligence and evolution. There are still places on this planet where people hunt for the pot and only take what they need Hunters for pleasure killing are a sad and obsolete species.
