New Strategy For Liberal Southern Ontario: Feed Them To The Bears...

Friends of Fur has a brilliant new proposal for the nuisance bear problem in north and eastern Ontario: re-introduce the black bears to southern Ontario!

Their proposal

- Black bears were eliminated from their former range in southern Ontario as recently as 1961!

- Thousands of nuisance black bears are destroyed annually, many leave orphaned clubs to starve to death needlessly

- MNR (Ministry of Natural Resources) Density Map shows that the population of black bears is unfairly distributed

- MNR claims there is "plenty of room" for both the growing population of black bears and humans

- Our proposal is to simply Equally Share Ontario's Black Bears!

Now, I wonder if all the urbanites and tree huggers will feel the same about the "poor" bears when they have them eating their garbage in Richmond Hill or chasing their kids on the Danforth...

Check out their site at http://friends-of-fur.org/ for more info or If you would like to be a part of this important work to save and re-locate black bears to their former ranges in southern Ontario, sharing this wonderful natural resource with our southern neighbors.

Hey, if this really takes off we could see an annual "Running with the Bears" down the Danforth next Canada Day!
MNR could herd excess black bears from up north down Yonge St. and split them so half run along Bloor while the other go east on Danforth.
I'm sure all sorts of Torontonians would like to get back "in touch" with nature...

Let's not be racist here. You can't just have BLACK bears.
I wan't to see polar bears, Grizzly bears, maybe a couple of pandas in the Eaton centre!

Well it never suprises me about the idiocy of some people. Black Bears in Richmond Hill? LOL, well that may have achievable back twenty years ago when most of Richmond Hill was still field, forests and meadows, but now? LOL, Richmond Hill looks like Toronto. Dang, you can't even use Yonge Street anymore in RH since the traffic is sooooo bad nowadays.

Oh, Zod, Panda are not bears, they are of the raccoon family, just really big ones.

Oh, btw, Black Bears should be referred to as "Bears of Color", LOL

The real question that should be asked is this, "when will black bears get the same rights as heteronormative and homonormatives as far as marriage is concerned?"

You've misspelled 'friends', both in the text and the URL for http://www.friends-of-fur.org/

Hey, yer right nonymouse! All fixed now, though.
I guess I was spelling it the American way. (I don't know how that got by "Tom", my spelling expert...)

It will not succeed in reality, that's exactly what I think.
