Doesn't anyone in this town carry tranq guns, Animal control or Vet hospitals, two animals killed in past week just cause they were cruising thru the neighborhood.. For them to be here, is normal, this was their land before humans and to roam close to people they are either hungary or lost, to kill is just a cop out or thrill...They had not attacked anyone and once found could of controlled that situation.. if warranted. But to kill is just unjustifiable and cruel to nature.

So the bear is tranqualized and transported to rural bear country.

A bear hunter shoots the same bear.

The bear hunter then eats the bear ingesting the tranqualizer and dies, is tranquilized.

So Dee do you want to pay the damages in the resultant law suit initiated by the hunters survivors?

This IS a concern, I visted Texas and they were netting the deer and hog tieing them because after release they could be consumed and end up killing people IF the deer were tranqualzed.

Think About It.
