I agree, it’s the same general argument made when a Great White Shark attacks a surfer or swimmer. We kill them for doing exactly what nature programmes them to do, hunt eat and mate! That’s it, they’re on constant lookout for food, nonstop. It’s the only way they survive. I can’t help but see dollar signs when hunting guides and outfitters talk about controlling numbers of bears in remote areas. Um, why are we trying to kill grizzly in REMOTE areas. That’s their home, we’re intruders not them. If a bear becomes a problem bear it’s relocated, if it persists or returns it’s then destroyed. That one bear, not 20 or 30 other non threatening bears. That one bear. I think outfitters attitudes might change if bears numbers were reduced by a government run cull, no profiteering, no guides making money, just dead bears. That attitude brought great whites to the brink because they’re incredibly dangerous and occasionally attack people. People thought the only good shark is a dead shark. Then we realize that 1 live great white was worth 10 million times more than 1 dead one. Because of tourism. Great whites are protected, and although rare, they aren’t remote monsters, they’re frequent visitors to some of the most populated beach areas on earth, and largely without incident. Same as grizzly bears. Largely without incident. You don’t kill grizzlies because you might run into one way out in the back country. That’s exactly where you should run into one. They’re the largest land carnivore on earth. They’re kings of their domain. We’re visitors. We have to be extra careful when they’re around. Ever see a sign “Be careful you’re in Bear Country”. Wonder why they post signs like that? To avoid liability? No, because when you’re in bear country you need to always be alert and act accordingly.
