WCS Canada Comments - Proposed changes to black bear hunting regulations - February 2020

WCS Canada


Abstract

We provide recommendations to the Ontario government in response to their proposal to implement a regular spring black bear hunt, which comes only three years after the initiation of a five-year pilot project to assess black bear harvest sustainability. We recommend that the implementation of a regular hunt be postponed at least until the pilot project ends in 2021, and the data and results of the project can finish being collected and analyzed.

Perpetuating current approaches and proceeding with an “extraction first” mentality is going to have massive climate consequences.
