Voice your support for spring bear hunt pilot project

The OFA believes the implementation of the spring bear hunt pilot is crucial in providing the means to manage potential threats to our safety and livelihoods resulting in stronger farm businesses and rural communities.

In recent years livestock losses from bear predation and damage to standing crops by bears have become a significant issue for Ontario farmers.

The pilot project, which begins May 1, 2014, is a responsible and effective method of working to control the increasing black bear population, while examining the response and effectiveness of the hunt.

OFA members are encouraged to voice their support for the spring bear hunt pilot by sending a letter of support to their Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP), Minister of Natural Resources David Orazietti and Premier and Minister of Agriculture and Food Kathleen Wynne through OFA’s lobby website at actnow.ofa.on.ca.
