After a recent investigation in Canada exposed how tens of thousands of black bears are killed each year in North America by a cruel practice called “bait and shoot”, PETA sent a letter to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper asking him to support a ban on this indefensible practice.
Bear baiting is so cruel it has been banned in British Columbia and in many U.S. states, and is condemned by the majority of Canadians and by numerous hunting and conservation groups as being cruel and unsportsmanlike, yet black bears continue to be cruelly slaughtered in Canada.
