Target: Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
Goal: Don’t allow hunters to legally kill bears for sport.
After a hunter shot and killed a massive white bear, media outlets and experts rushed to figure out whether the animal was a rare grizzly-polar bear hybrid. No one stopped to mourn the tragic death of a sentient creature or question the legality of hunting bears for fun. The animal turned out to be a blond grizzly, but this does not make its death any less sad.
Unfortunately, even if the bear had been an extremely rare “pizzly” hybrid, the hunter would still face no punishment for killing it. The same is true for polar bears, despite the fact that their shrinking habitat is putting intense pressure on this endangered species, which is officially classified as “vulnerable” on account of its rapidly decreasing population. A law banning the hunting of all bears must urgently be passed, as these majestic creatures do not deserve to die for hunters’ entertainment.
Sign this petition urging Canada to protect these beautiful animals from being senselessly murdered for sport and urgently ban bear hunting,
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,
A blond grizzly bear shot and killed by a hunter in Nunavut sparked rumors that it was a polar bear-grizzly cross breed. Experts found that this was not the case, but this does not make the animal’s death for one man’s entertainment any less tragic. Sadly, even if the animal had been an extremely rare hybrid, it would still have been legal to shoot it.
Polar bears are also still legally hunted, despite being a vulnerable species due to their numbers decreasing rapidly. Urgent steps must be taken to protect bears in Canada from the senseless and brutal end met by this beautiful blond grizzly.
Please ban bear hunting to protect these animals from being murdered for sport.
