There's no sport in killing animals
March 2, 2010
Grizzly bears are an iconic animal in British Columbia and B.C. residents take pride in the fact that our province is host to some of the bears' last remaining territory in the world. Incredibly, the hunting of these bears for sport is still permitted by the provincial government.
The BC SPCA is opposed to the hunting of all animals for trophy or sport and has joined an international network of groups to call on the B.C. government to end this unjustified practice. For the BC SPCA's official position about hunting, please download our position statement.
You can help these majestic creatures by asking the Provincial government to end the trophy hunt of bears in the Great Bear Rainforest.
When you add your name, you will join the nearly 80% of British Columbians who oppose this hunt. As well, you will be supporting a growing humane wildlife viewing industry that believes a living bear is worth far more than a dead one.
Please write or call the B.C. government and let them know that it is time to end the trophy hunt of bears in the Great Bear Rainforest.
