B.C. Bear Hunt: David Suzuki Mauls the Facts

Marissa Semkiw talks to Keith Beasley of “Canada in the Rough,” who talks about David Suzuki’s call for an end to the annual B.C. bear hunt.

Beasley says Suzuki’s reasons aren’t based on science — he simply has a personal anti-hunting agenda.

Beasley adds that only 2% to 4% of the B.C. bear population is harvested per year.

    Hey, my Danish nephew is on his way to Sweden to hunt some pretty wild and big animals. And then they bbq them. I am so proud of that boy.

    Bear hunting is disgusting, especially bear baiting.

      Sodomy is digusting. Also the 19th Amendment.

      Then clearly you do not live where bears are a serious problem: killing livestock and people. There is NO shortage of bears both black and grizzlies in BC.

    I find totally bizarre that environmental groups and whiny indians are protesting in hearings today about the new terror legislation, that it may effect them when they break the law. I guess they seem to think that they can continue to be immune from investigation or prosecution when they perform criminal acts.

    • First of all, everything is about X group. What a pack of paranoid whiners.

      Secondly, given what happened in New Brunswick, I’d damn well start raking these extremists over the coals. It would benefit the average aboriginal not have the Indian Mafia frightening them.

  • I don’t care for sport hunting but hunting and fishing for food, ecological reasons or security is fine as long as it is done humanely.

    What’s the problem?

      David Suzuki remains protected.

    When ever suzuki starts butchering facts it’s a good guess his charity has recieved $$ from someone who wants him to push the public a certain way.

    While there’s little doubt about David Suzuki’s sanity & intentions, he’s nothing more than an armchair conservationist, an opportunist, a business man.
    The problem in BC is much profound than whether to allow spring Bear hunt or not.
    The real problem we BC hunters are facing from the provincial govt. decision to allocate up to 40% of the annual hunting quota to outfitters, while huge chunk of previously accessible public land for hunting has been apportioned to logging companies. Last year, the deer numbers went drastically down and Canadian icon Mr. moose were nowhere to be seen. All the while BC outfitters are having a field day.

    So where can I watch Canada in the rough now that Sun News is no more? The last episode before the shutdown was pretty incredible. They ran into a grizzly bear that was chasing mountain goats down the side of a cliff. It was amazing.

    Also, where can I get her phone number?
