21. Non-violence
As a vegetarian for over 40 years I am certainly non-violent. But I can understand the need to manage the bear population, as well as the human population. Of course, hunts like this turn my stomach and I doubt the necessity, but will concede the point.

However, killing is an easy solution---what other remedies have been considered to manage this problem? All too often the easy way out causes more problems than the solution, as is the side-effect here of a rising deer population because deer predators have been killed.

As the old saying goes: "it's not nice to fool Mother Nature"
