That is one less beautiful animal that my children and I will be able to see in our lifetime. That is horrible that they killed it. If hunters are stupid enough to kill a beautiful creature, then I hope they get drugged too. That animal did nothing wrong. People take over their environment.

I think it's horrible that they killed a "mellow bear" that showed no signs of aggression...Why couldn't they have kept it at a reserve until the 14 days had passed or change that stupid law. So what if a hunter eats some tranquilizer that's the chance they take. We encroach on their land but blame the animal for having a presence there. It's like that poor tiger tragedy last year. It really makes me sad and angry. Sorry little bear for stupid human judgements.

It is more then just "unfortunate" that this beautiful creature was put down. It is a tragedy. Does one not have compassion for this animal?! It is unbelieveable to me and I am sure to others this bear had to be "put down" due to a law regarding hunting that definitely needs to be changed.
Is this what we are teaching our future generations - to kill and not try to save God's creation. This is a very sad story. I hope we learn from this tragic mistake. We need to study and learn about bears, not kill them.
May the person(s) involved in this decision of killing this bear be forgiven for their actions.
