Control Bears Without Snaring

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / October 15, 2010


Back in the '50s you needed to go no farther than Glennallen to shoot your three caribou when they crossed the highway. Moose were easily gotten across the Inlet; it was known as the bread/meat basket of Anchorage. I am well aware that game populations have been drastically reduced because of over-hunting and predators.

Fish and Game has a proposal to rationalize trapping of bears by reclassifying bears as furbearers. The term furbearers implies that bears have marketable furs. I don't think that David Green, the local master furrier, will be buying bear furs to make women's coats.

Shoot the bears, shoot them from a tree at a bait station, but don't trap them with snares. Snares are extremely cruel and do not target a specific animal.
