What a waste of a natural resource

Dear Editor
RE: proposed spring bear ‘hunt’:

“The Ontario Government has finally listened to the concerns of northerners, and proposed a pilot project that will bring back the spring bear hunt to a limited number of northern communities during the next two years. “
Oh yes, by all means bring back the spring bear ‘hunt’. Let us again look forward to brand new bunch of starving cubs wandering around in the bush because avaricious outfitters have programmed mother bears where to find something to eat, only to die in a hail of bullets.
Interested concerned people should look at the photos on the outfitters’ websites where smiling ‘hunters’ pose beside beautiful (now dead) black bears.
What magnificent animals; such shiny coats!
What a waste of a natural resource!
