Grizzly bear hunting in B.C.

On December 18 and effective immediately, the B.C. government announced a ban on all grizzly bear hunting for resident and non-resident hunters.

Consistent with our position statement on hunting, the BC SPCA supported a total ban on grizzly bear hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest and province-wide, as outlined in our submission to government (PDF).

The BC SPCA is applauding today’s announcement, and would like to thank the more than 6,000 people who emailed the Fish and Wildlife Branch through our advocacy action alert.
