Mainers For Fair Bear Hunting
Bears are beloved creatures in Maine, the mascot of the University of Maine since 1914. Maine is the only state to allow statewide hounding, baiting, and commercial trapping of bears, cruel and unethical practices that do not reflect Maine values. It’s time for fair bear hunting. The Maine Fair Bear Hunting Act would align Maine with much of the rest of the country by enacting the following long-overdue protections for the bear population and preserving traditional Maine hunting.
Mainers for Fair Bear Hunting seeks to gather 80,000 signatures within the state, in order to put this issue on the November 2014 ballot.
