AverageAmericanGuy: fiver5: She should get her meat at the grocery store in shrink wrapped packages like everyone else does. Because killing animals is wrong.This is the dumbest comment I've ever read. You know that in order to make that meat that you buy at the grocery store, that someone has to kill the animal it comes from? Just because you're buying something at the store doesn't mean that that animal wasn't slaughtered. It most definitely was.If I had my druthers, I'd put a stop to killing animals for food. Humans are an agricultural species and don't need meat to survive.
sendtodave: HotWingConspiracy: Exactly. Based on market forces alone, that bear is far more valuable than that kid. There are over 7 billion humans, we're essentially worthless. Bears being far more rare, are worth a mint.She's probably worth around $750-790k, according to humansforsale.com. Hard to say, with the whole dying thing. I substituted "High Blood Pressure," "Kidney Disease," and "AIDS" for the imminent organ failure.Whereas big bear meat is only worth 45c. You do the math.
dittybopper: A bear doesn't give any continued return on investment until you exploit it, and then it's gone. A child will grow up to be an adult that can be worked, and you can make decades of profit off of them. That's why a child, though more numerous than a bear, is more valuable from the perspective of market forces.
CeroX: It might not "deserve" it, but it's not more important than an 11 year old girl...
DWitchiewoman: dittybopper:DWitchiewoman: Came in here to see all the little girl hate...Leaving way more freaked out that a man was seriously trying to find out if he could use his wife's hipbone as a hammer...Not *JUST* a hammer, but one for knapping flint, perhaps as a replacement for the antler I have been usingI don't know weather to be horrified or turned on. Uncomfortable.

dittybopper: Langdon_777: I am a fan of letting anyone become a member of an indigenous group (if they are accepted) but lets keep the hunting to the "damn its hard" level - not night scoping from landrovers.I'm sort-of down with that, to a point.I chose to go the "make it damned tough" route for myself. That's because I found it too easy with a scoped .30'06 or a super-fast compound bow. Instead of chasing after bigger and bigger trophies as a method of ramping up the difficulty, I went primitive instead.That's not to say I advocate that it must be done that way for everyone.Not everybody has the time, money, or inclination to make hunting as difficult for themselves as possible. Nor should they, necessarily, because then it discourages people from trying it in the first place. If you want to use a high powered rifle with a 3x9 variable range-finding scope, etc., be my guest. So long as the game regulations are written to ensure a viable (and hopefully expanding) game population, I don't even have a problem with people using night vision googles, and hunting from Land Rovers.
kregh99: /people that kill for fun are something this world can do without
Mid_mo_mad_man: seniorgato: You know, you go hunt a deer, you kill it, and process it. Then eat it.Killing a bear... You get, what? A rug?I mean, yes, if the bear is a danger, that's one thing. But I sincerely doubt a girl with a heart and liver problem was out hunting a man eater..Wasting the meat is a crime in every state. In many places you have to pack out it before capes/antlers. Big game hunting is the largest source of protein food banks have.
This man is no longer happy.
OnlyM3: No, you brave moon bats are calling for the murder of a child instead.
Oblio13: Dinner table conversation at a neighbor's that we still laugh about:My cute little daughter: "Are we having bear meat? That's my favorite."Shocked hostess: "WHAT?! NO!""Deer?""No!""Moose?""No, no!"(Long pause with a furrowed brow) "Well what, then?"
The Muthaship: Look at the top 5 "Smartest" comments....you f*ckers are sick.
sendtodave: HotWingConspiracy: Ask anyone if they'd rather have a bear, or a diseased, depressing child. She's a total money sink. The bear is just going to be out there doing bear stuff, pretty self-sufficient.Fair point. And in some places you could put the bear in a cage, and have people pay to feed it peanuts or something. Easy money.Try doing that with a kid.
NannyStatePark: I name my lobsters, so I must be really messed up. The waitstaff at Red Lobster think its hilariousplay along with my lame joke because they think they'll get a better tip then make fun of me after I leave.

natas6.0: I have no argument with hunting any animal for food.Even by the genetically inferiorthis is pretty ridiculous"look what someone helped me do! I could never have ended this life on my own"Kinda hope she sees that same bear very soonand it showes her the same mercy for the next thousand years
gmoney101: Hey Check this out, when I was in the Maldives the waters around the beaches where I swam are Shark infested; This is to STILL a Shark
NannyStatePark: People in here preaching karma should ask Timothy Treadwell just what he did to deserve what he got.
Langdon_777: Tat'dGreaser: Heh, I love people who can't wrap their heads around humans hunting animals.As ex-miltary I prefer real sport - hunting humans - but as its immoral and illegal I avoid such pleasures and play the playstation instead.
dittybopper: HotWingConspiracy: abhorrent1: CeroX: because she's a human, and that thing is an animalExactly. That animals life has far more value./should have dropped her in the woods and hunted her.//she's dying anyway.Exactly. Based on market forces alone, that bear is far more valuable than that kid. There are over 7 billion humans, we're essentially worthless. Bears being far more rare, are worth a mint.False, actually.A bear doesn't give any continued return on investment until you exploit it, and then it's gone. A child will grow up to be an adult that can be worked, and you can make decades of profit off of them. That's why a child, though more numerous than a bear, is more valuable from the perspective of market forces.
Big Ramifications: Mate, I'm quite prepared to take the other side of the argument. "let's get out of town and abandon our houses coz the bears are running out of room and it's too dangerous to stick around." Seriously.

fickenchucker: Comments talking about being sad for the bear and biatching about the kid hunting it is what makes me glad I actually don't know you people. And it makes me a little depressed you have the ability to breed and be considered adults.The bear ended up as food and was deemed legal to hunt by the government agency that issued the permit, mainly due to the need to manage population density properly. Grow up and stop acting like a bunch of little girls.Or should I downgrade that to fetuses, since it was a little girl way cooler than you who had the hunting experience of a lifetime.
sendtodave: guises: Big Ramifications: Carnivores have a range. Doesn't matter how "huge" their habitat is, once it gets too crowded then they start wandering in to towns.This is very occasionally true for bears, although most of the time when you find a bear in town it's because it was driven there by habitat destruction rather than overcrowding. You can't generalize this to all carnivores however. North American wolves, for example, are very skittish around people, wolf attacks are extremely rare. It's a little different for European wolves, they're a little more aggressive. Cougars also stay far away from people.Of course, "overcrowding" isn't a word that's been applicable to wolves or cougars for more than a hundred years so maybe that's moot.That's another bit of mental gymnastics, actually.It's wrong to go kill majestic animals! But if they come into our territory, well now, they have it coming.Never mind that we're actually the ones encroaching on their territory.Eh. Might as well just say "It's psychopathic to kill animals for a reason that I don't like."
gmoney101: Big Ramifications: gmoney101: I'm not a hippy or anything, but I hate to see any animal killed for no reason (except mosquitoes, they make their bed when they try to bite me) even spiders that I am terrified of, I won't kill. However, if it is for food then I agree with hunting. A man that hunts his meat is no more a monster than a man who buys his meat. That said, if this family do not eat this bear, then they can all go fark themselves!And that silly prick in the comments, farking culls? Black bears are not farking rabbits, they typically have 2 cubs in a litter in 2 year cycles and the more cubs they have the greater the mortality rate in the litter. The woods are farking huge, why the hell would you need to cull? Oh for sport.../People are coontsI'm not pro-hunting, but that is just emotive bullshiat. Carnivores have a range. Doesn't matter how "huge" their habitat is, once it gets too crowded then they start wandering in to towns. Then it's culling time.I need more info as to whether the kill might be justified as part of a cull.JAYZUSS LOIUSE-USS!!!![i47.tinypic.com image 400x579][i45.tinypic.com image 400x261]http://www.sportsmanhill.com/bear-hunting/giant-grizzly-bear-prince- wi lliam-sound.htmlThat's a Grizzly, Dipshiat
doloresonthedottedline: Was awesome until I saw the dead bear. Now I'm just sad.
cassanovascotian: They were hungry and needed to eat. They did what they had to do. I got no problem with that.
