Mainers for Fair Bear Hunting seeks to enact long-overdue protections for Maine’s bear population. Bears are majestic and beloved creatures in Maine. Yet it is the only state to allow statewide hounding, baiting, and trapping. These are cruel and unsporting practices that do not reflect Maine values. It’s time for fair bear hunting. This fall, we will begin gathering 80,000 signatures to put this important issue on the 2014 ballot.
