One Response to Alberta suspends grizzly hunt for fourth year in a row

    Notice that a more liberal kill is dependent on a DNA population count. This tells you why even Republican politicians are happy to finance a $4 million DNA population count of grizzlies in the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem: Glacier Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness and more. Once you get a good count on grizzlies, you can justify delisting them and then you can start hunting them.



‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
