Maine Sen. Mazurek Will Sponsor HSUS’ Anti Bear Hunting Bill

Two weeks ago I reported that the Humane Society of the United States, was looking for someone in the Maine Legislature willing to sponsor their ridiculous anti bear hunting and trapping bill. It appears they have found their marionette in Maine Senator Edward Mazurek, D-Rockland.

The Sun Journal report is mostly a copy and paste effort from the Humane Society of the United States’ (HSUS) website, so it fails to present any other opinion, position, or facts from people who have them. HSUS does not!

This bill should NEVER make it out of committee. We will see just where the Legislature, Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and the governor stand on this. Ironic in a way that MDIFW and the Legislature tend to tip-toe around scared to death of offending someone or causing some insane animal rights con artists, like HSUS, to file a lawsuit like the one in 2004. And what do we have? Not a lawsuit but what good did tip-toeing do except send out a red flag that Maine is weak on game management.
