OFAH Worried About Spring Bear Hunt

The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters is worried that opponents of the Spring Bear Hunt will try to convince the provincial government to cancel a pilot project this year.  The government has proposed a modified spring hunt in eight wildlife areas in northern Ontario this spring.  Yesterday, former Price Is Right host Bob Barker called the hunt "barbaric" claiming cubs are starved to death after their mothers are lured from their den. The OFAH is asking northerners to log onto the Environmental bill of rights and register their support for the hunt.
