Hunters in Alaska will soon be allowed to use bacon grease and doughnuts to bait brown bears, spotlights to shoot hibernating mother bears and cubs in their dens and motorboats to shoot swimming caribou — thanks to a reversal of  Obama-era guidelines  by the Trump administration this week. 

Effective July 9, hunting on nature preserves in Alaska will once again be controlled by the state rather than the federal government. The new rule, published Tuesday in the Federal Register, reverses hunting bans put in place in all National Parks by the Obama administration in 2015 following years of pleading by environmental and wildlife protection groups.

The rules, which many see as  cruel  and unnecessary, allow baiting of brown and black bears with human food, hunting of bears in their dens using artificial light, killing of wolves and coyotes in their dens during the season when mothers wean their young, using dogs to hunt bears and hunting of swimming caribou from boats. These actions were banned by Obama federally despite being permitted by the state of Alaska.

It's totally disgusting with no regard for the life any animal so long as it feeds the killer instincts of some.

This is the doing of the Trump administration.

And, no, it should not be allowed.

Originally a ban on these sorts of things was put in place by Obama:

I'd be ashamed to put a bear trophy on my wall if I knew I had "hunted" it down by baiting it with a donut. 

I think that may just be up the big game hunters Don Jr and Eric Trump's alley though.

Yet the damn gop still takes offense at "Deplorable".

It's already been a free for all, but the next four months will especially be a free for all. Then we'll put the protections back in place, ideally with protections for the protections.

You might be right!
