PETA Speaks Out Against Bear Hunt

The animal activist group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is rallying its troops against the upcoming return of the spring bear hunt in Ontario.

It's asking people to write the Premier and the Natural Resources Minister to cancel the hunt.

PETA representative Ashley Byrne says the spring hunt won't help with bear populations or human bear conflicts.

PETA feels Ontario should instead enforce strict wildlife feeding prohibitions and provide residents with more information about how to better coexist peacefully with their wild neighbors.
