"Donald Trump has lifted ban on hunting hibernating bears and wolf cubs"

The state of Alaska is home to 16 U.S. national wildlife refuges and a vast variety of iconic animals — two of which are now fair game for hunters.

A joint bill from the U.S. House and Senate, signed off by President Donald Trump on Monday, revokes an Obama-era rule that bans "predator control" hunting on Alaska's refuges.

The ban protected hibernating bears from being hunted, along with wolf cubs in dens. It also protected these animals from being targeted from helicopters.

    Fortunately, if I read the comments correctly, Alaska has its own laws that prevent this from happening.

    Also interesting is the purported reason as suggested by a commenter: less predators means more big game animals, meaning more hunting, meaning more...

    That isn't "predator control".  It's competition control.

    What self-respecting man would consider killing a hibernating bear or a wolf cub to be hunting?

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    The same men who walk out into the woods with $5,000 worth of gear on them and "laser sights" on their rifles, I'd imagine. I don't think they appreciate life or nature in the same way you or I do.
