For pleasure

Pacific Wild on the bear hunt.

“We’re not against hunting per-se,” McAllister said. “I’m a hunter myself. We’re against the gratuitous sport hunting of bears. Killing an animal for pleasure to put a trophy on the wall.”

And public opinion appears to be in their favour. An Ipsos Reid poll taken in 2009 suggests that 78 per cent of British Columbians oppose trophy hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest, which stretches from Alaska down to the northern tip of Vancouver Island along the coast.

But the B.C. Guide Outfitters Association says hunting is necessary for wildlife management, and compares a ban on bear hunting to letting forest fires burn uncontrolled.
