Spring bear hunt unnecessary

To the Editor

We get so much from nature and we give so little back. Cancelling the spring bear hunt  forever is one way to give back.
The more we are educated about bear behaviour and understand their ways the more we can do to avoid conflicts. Bears look for food not confrontations. We all know this.
The spring bear hunt is a drastic cruel and unwarranted human response. It was disturbing that the Ontario MNR decided to cancel Bearwise and other ways to help with bear interactions choosing instead to act only with police in ways that are reactionary not preventive and to re-instate the spring bear hunt.
