ACTION NEEDED: Bears Raffled To Be Killed- No Love For Bears In Canada

ACTION NEEDED-

While New Jersey bears and Florida bears are receiving a lot of love. Canadian bears are often neglected because they’re not on American soil. Open Season Tv is taking advantage of this loophole by sending hunters to Canada across Wisconsin border to hunt bears in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

If you truly love bears, all bears should matter regardless of whether they’re living in New Jersey, Florida or Canada. Please support Canadian bears by standing up for them.

  1. I have looked at the Saskatchewan Wildlife Management, Report 2013-14 – The population ‘count’ of black bears changed in 2014:

    “During 2014 black bear populations were monitored based on reports from hunters, ministry staff and from crop and bee-yard damage compensation data provided by SCIC. It is planned to initiate a hunter harvest survey for bear in 2015.”

    The 2014 report (p58 -63) has no data on bear harvest numbers after 2010/11 – Saskatchewan resident hunters (licenses) have risen from 1,954 (2006) to 4,153 (2014), ‘harvesting’ 895 bears in 2009, but no harvest data after 2009 – why? Non-resident hunter licences were around 1,651 (2014), with some 1,074 bears taken in 2010 by 1,439 non-resident hunter license holders, but no bear harvest data after 2010 – again why?

    So, with the “hunter harvest survey for bear in 2015” we have an example of a proposed population estimate (some algorithm) being based on how ‘successful’ (ie. easy) it has been for hunters to “harvest” bears. The logic being, the easier it is to kill a bear, the more bears there must be, right? The results for the 2015 hunters’ survey are not available it seems, only 2014 results are available on the web-site but even this does not include black bears (?). There appears to be a big hole in bear harvest data from 2010/11 to 2015, so how does the Saskatchewan Wildlife Management department know how many black bears it might be safe to harvest in the 2016 season? Or are they keeping the data a secret, or basing their judgements on “anecdotal evidence” only? The Saskatchewan Wildlife Management 2013-14 report concludes “Based on anecdotal evidence collected during the period it appears that bear populations were generally stable or increasing. Increases were mainly reported in the east-central and southeast areas.” So they must know what they are doing, right?
