There are many countries that have banned battery hens and superfarms etc.
Most countries also dint pump their cattle full of drugs to the point that other countries have banned their import.
The US farming (I use that loosely) model is so wrong and industrialised that it's actually offensive.
Which is why people should buy small, fresh, local...farmers markets etc.
Don't support the super farms and town-sized killing plants, and things will change.
"Europe's role as provider of food to the world is diminishing," and as 2015 approaches, the EU is expected to move from being a net exporter to a net importer of wheat, oilseeds and other commodities, said Franz Fischler, chairman of the Forum on the Future for Agriculture, last week.
This means that "the EU capacity to help fight world starvation will be reduced at a time in which food production will decline predominantly in those countries which already record increasing food import needs," Fischler added.

Again you point is, we need an organization to protect little girls since bears can protect themselves. I think that the move was to the point and could be an incredibly opportunity to make a sport hunters reconsider their actions that were the direct cause of his situation.
There are too many humans and too few bears, that is the final math.
Ah, let me guess....
You are anti-gun
The reason for HUNTING SEASON is to thin out animals, so they don't over populate.
Whether it's deer/bear season, there is a specific time of the year to hunt.
It's not like a free for all, shoot what we want when we want.
There are laws in place to monitor hunting
And I value human lives over wild animals any day of the week

Not all deer species that confront cars also face extinction. Many regions of the U.S. suffer from overpopulation of two species of large mammals: deer and humans. No wonder our two paths cross so often, as each year 350,000 deer fatally collide with vehicles. An additional 50,000 collide and survive.
From 1993 to 1994, Ohio's deer population rose five percent, as did its deer collisions. Among its total deer population of over 500,000, there were 25,636 reported cases of deer colliding with cars. That's 1 in 20óand that's only what's reported.
Human casualties also occur. In 1994, Michigan reported 56,666 deer collisions, of which five resulted in human fatalities. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every year 120 people are killed and 8,000 are injured in deer collisions. For all animal collisions, it's 150 people dead and 10,000 injured.
The letter is completely condescending. Peta should have not sent it at all. If im walking in the woods and an animal attacks me....im going to do everything I can to defend myself including kill it if need be. That is just nature. I wouldnt be mad at the bear. But neither should someone be mad at me. I think hunting for sport is ridiculous but I also think golf is ridiculous. Some people just enjoy hunting. As long as its legal who cares. PETA's letter is rude as hell.

Am I understanding this right!?!
She went out hunting bears. The Bear bit her. And she's concerned because someone told her to think about it from the Bears point of view??
BWA HA HA HA
The Bear should have bit her head off.
How anyone could go out for the day, and want to shoot a bear is completely beyond me.
Am I understanding this right!?!
It's unlikely that anybody bought up to hunt will end up supporting peta. Brainwashing works both ways.
