Al Cowperthwaite is the executive director of the North Maine Woods. One of the responsibilities of the North Maine Woods is to track and control traffic onto large parcels of private land, mostly for recreational use. Cowperthwaite believes that if the Humane Society of the United States is successful in banning bear hunting with bait, trapping and hunting bears with dogs, a lot of people will lose their jobs due to lost revenue.
