As a rule I do not cover game poaching stories. I’ll let you figure out why. Unless of course the poaching involves some extreme or extenuating circumstances of interest other than a bunch of brain dead morons killing game for money or perhaps other perverse reasons.
There’s an opinion piece published in the Montana Standard about the need for harsher penalties for poaching but in that article, as was brought to my attention, is an interesting bit of unintended(?) commentary.
Three men are being charged with poaching at least nine black bears. However, all the killing took place as the men allegedly used “bait” to lure the bears in and make the kill. In Maine, as we have seen in many other places in the United States, perverted animal rights mental midgets claim that it is just as easy to hunt bears without bait as with bait. Understanding that poachers are a breed just slightly above that of any politician and of anyone who thinks animals have rights, and who probably couldn’t care less about whether they had their hunting licenses taken away or not (like making a law believed to stop criminals from having a gun), are more or less inclined to be lazy, good for nothings. Therefore, the bait?
But then again, if a poacher actually had a brain (remember, poachers are a cut just above politicians and animal rights scum but certainly does not qualify them to be smart) they would understand that leaving bait scattered all over the landscape might be more apt to direct somebody to their crime of poaching. But that all assumes a poacher has a brain.
The point to all this nonsense is that if it’s so easy to shoot a damned bear in the woods, as the perverts of animal rights claim, then why would poachers go to the effort, and there would be a lot of it, to bait bears?
