Yeah, irresponsible hunters exist. Your point?

Animals feel pain.

OK?

You think it hurts any less when a 4 legged animal is killed by another 4 legged animal...

Or how about starvation due to the population exceeding the food supply... or the disease brought on by the lack of food that decimates the population?

Not killing the animals is not a viable option unless we start killing humans at a rate faster than we are birthing humans.

My bottom line:

Of the species that are regularly hunted during 'open' seasons, like deer, ducks, geese, moose and, yes, black bears, it is the most dearly held objective that these populations are healthy and numerous. Organizations such as 'Ducks Unlimited' do extensive work protecting wetlands, for instance, so that the flocks are not impacted by human encroachment. The same can be said for migratory routes (elk, wolves, bear, buffalo) by the efforts of groups such as Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y) among many others.

You can thank such efforts for the preservation of 'wild spaces', even though they can sometimes seem to go overboard.

That a loved black bear which is more a popular curiosity than a healthy specimen may be sadly missed is understandable, so I sympathize with those who loved it, but it is a black bear taken legally during an open season.

Yes my older sister and I were talking about this. She ssid the exact same thing you just stated.😑
My dad took my to see "Bambi" as a child.
I could hunt if i had to. But that would only be in a post cataclysmic event.
I'd rather go fishing..... but I got the 3rd degree about that a few times as well.
