Researchers report grizzly bears overhunted in B.C.
The B. C. government is claiming that the province's trophy grizzly bear hunt can be carried on since they say that the rate of hunting is higher and the population estimates are not true. These claims are always now being questioned by scientists.
Scientists from SFU and University of Victoria have done a study which has been published today in Public Library of Science which is a journal reviewed by his colleagues.
The report says that over 300 grizzly bears are hunted down by trophy hunters in B. C. every year.
The B. C. government claims that are a sustainable harvest, since it estimates there are about 15,000 grizzlies in B. C.
Researchers, however, say that their analysis of the figures given by the government from the last decade increases serious questions about that conclusion.
SFU scholar Kyle Artelle says larger number of grizzlies have been murdered than even government targets permit in areas which are in half of the populated areas.
Minimum in one territorial populace, seekers executed 24 bears more than the nearby share permitted.
She added that it does create mistrust that administration is defending the future of these people.
