I worked in close proximity to native black bears for years and have plenty of photos and videos of bears within spitting distance or less. Even the most grizzled, battle-scarred boar I've ever stumbled upon never even so much as gave me reason to pause. They are to be respected, but fear is generally unwarranted.

I choose protecting human life over bears. Bears don’t pay taxes. Super cool creatures but if the state is going to prohibit and limit my rights in a state park then they need to provide people with bear mace or protection.

Imagine you walk into a park and lose your constitutional right to free speech? It doesn’t make sense with any other amendment but it’s okay for the 2a? Weird. Seems almost discriminatory or like an infringement on constitutional rights.

Then please support a bear hunting season. There's nothing wrong with well-guided conservation.
