2. The bear IS threatened...so why officially not make it so...and stop the hunting.

All those who have a bear rug or bear part are disgraceful and they make me sick!

3. Agreed. And are they shooting from helicopters? That would be like DeLay's canned hunts in Texas.

7. "She isn't as stupid as she is made out to be"
