Mind boggles

On Alberta’s grizzly bear hunt ban.

Alberta’s new Sustainable Resource Development Minister Mel Knight has left the door open to allow a limited grizzly hunt in the Grande Cache region. The MLA for Grande Prairie-Smoky recently opined that “there are places where people are going to say: ‘Why don’t you allow some harvest in a certain area?’ “You reckon that folks can be found suggesting almost anything, but we don’t expect the government of Alberta to investigate an Elvis sighting in Rimbey or promote the limited use of chewing tobacco. The mind boggles at the notion that a clearly threatened species whose numbers have almost certainly been enhanced by recent protections might be subject to a new hunt. Knight invoked the spectre of personal and livestock security in his recent comments, as if there was some sort of grizzly infestation in the Grande Cache area.
