・・・BEAR SITS NEXT TO MAN 🐻💕 .

Sharing this as it's one of my favourite videos ever and thankfully I still have it on my phone from my old page that IG removed for no reason earlier this month.

Bears are extremely misunderstood beings. This video is beautiful as it epitomises mutual respect and peaceful co-existence but please never get this close to a bear. Keep your distance and respect their space and they will respect yours.

This is an exceptional case as even though these coastal Alaskan brown bears are completely wild, they're also habituated to human presence and know that the humans who visit this river to watch them fish are not a threat #SaveBears #SaveAnimals #StopTheTrophyHunt #ShootWithCamerasNotWithGuns #RespectWildlife

I recently posted an image of a grizzly bear carcass that had been killed for sport outside of its winter den. It generated a lot of comments, mostly from people like me who are outraged and saddened by the trophy hunt of bears. Many opposed were subsistence or food hunters who separate themselves from sport or trophy hunters. The comments from the pro-trophy hunting side questioned the authenticity of my post suggesting that the bear died a natural death, as if the bear managed to strip the skin and fur off of it’s body before putting a bullet through its chest.

The day after I took the picture of the bear carcass I was hiking through the same range of mountains and spotted a beautiful bear that had just emerged from her den and was making her way down to the ocean to feed on herring eggs. Two rifle shots unexpectedly rang out, the bear buckled, her paws furiously trying to rub the pain away from her chest before she fell to the ground paralyzed. I ran to the bear and as she gave her final breaths we were met by these two trophy hunters. It was a guided hunt and the client was a trophy hunter from southern US. They did the usual “high five” and the guide shook the clients hand, congratulating him on having killed such a magnificent trophy, a "big boar” he said. I turned the bear’s leg over and showed the client what a female bear looks like. This one had probably just reached reproductive age. I asked him why he killed her and he responded with the typical useless boilerplate answer: “It has always been a dream of mine to travel to the northern wilderness and kill a grizzly bear.” He paused. “You wouldn’t understand.” I suppose he was right. I simply won’t ever understand what would compel someone to travel such a great distance from their home just to kill a magnificent animal, the second slowest reproducing land mammal in North America, and a female at that. They skinned her, now a rug gathering dust on a wall thousands of miles from her home. The grizzly bear trophy hunt starts in less than a month.

Wow check out the skill and precision of this beautiful bear's fishing technique 🐻💕 .

Now this is the circle of life. Unlike humans, animals kill for NEED not GREED. They do what they need to do to survive #SaveBears #RespectWildlife #StopTheTrophyHunt #ShootWithCamerasNotWithGuns

HAPPY CANADA DAY! #Repost @pacificwild 🐻🇨🇦 ・・・
Happy Canada Day! Canada is home to one the world’s leading symbols of wilderness: the grizzly bear. On Canada’s 150th anniversary, we are aspiring to raise $1,500 to go to our conservation efforts in helping stop the grizzly bear trophy hunt in BC. There are few experiences more awe-inspiring than the sight of a grizzly bear in its natural environment. The opportunity to see bears in the wild draws thousands of international tourists to Canada each year. This country is one of the last global safe havens for grizzly bears worldwide. Yet despite evidence that bear populations are shrinking, the government of B.C. continues to allow this iconic animal to be recklessly hunted and killed for sport.
In conserving our land and waters as a gift to the planet, Pacific Wild asks you to support our efforts for a #trophyfreeBC. If 100 people give just $15 in donation, we will reach our goal for #Canada150. Head to the link in our profile to be one of the 100 people who support our conservation efforts today. Together, let’s change the story of how Canadians make their mark on an iconic animal of global importance.

Continuing my thread from the @natgeo post of this same bear, I want to chat about grizzly bear hunting. The recent half-hearted grizzly hunting moratorium by the @BCNDP in my home province of British Columbia is not enough. We need to end hunting of all grizzly bears, period. This move is a glaring attempt to stay true to their campaign promise, while still allowing trophy hunters to kill apex predators in B.C.‘s territory. The government claims there are approximately 15,000 grizzlies in B.C. and hunters kill about 250 every year.
Natural Resources Minister Doug Donaldson has stated, “Hunters will no longer be able to possess the hide or the head or the paws of the bear, so we feel quite confident that this announcement will mean the end of the grizzly bear trophy hunt through the province.”
At SeaLegacy we know these immense, solitary creatures are more fragile than most people believe, requiring 4,000 square kilometres each as territory.
They are an umbrella species whose health can help determine the health of an entire ecosystem. To hunt them in any fashion is anything but noble, and we want to add our voice to the loud chorus of British Columbians and citizens of the world who understand their value beyond a hide on a wall or a meal on a plate. Hit the link in our bio to read more and learn how you can help us #StopTheTrophyHunt while #TurningtheTide for grizzly bears.

Christy Clark is resigning as B.C.’s 35th premiere after serving for six and a half years. She will leave politics and step down as the leader of the Liberal Party on August 4th. This is good news for bears as the fall grizzly bear trophy hunt is fast approaching --- B.C. will have one less MLA to vote for the killing of these majestic animals. "We certainly don't want to see another hunt go forward this fall and so I think we'll do as much as we can,” Kitasoo Band Chief Councillor Doug Neasloss, a representative for the Coastal First Nations, said to the @globeandmail. But with the hunt opening this September, the deadline to pass a ban is imminent.

@Regranned from @a_lallie_new - I love bears 💕They're very misunderstood beings. Black bears are actually very timid. I'm glad this man kept his distance but was kind to them and behaved non-threateningly. Hunters who shoot bears for their warped sense of 'fun' sicken me to my core #StopTheTrophyHunt #SaveBears 🐻 .

I woke up this morning heavy hearted thinking about the ban lift on poaching these majestic creatures so I grabbed my #elephanttotem bracelet I got from @zenjewelz and came downstairs seconds after putting it on to hear the news saying that the ban lift was on HOLD! Yes!!!!!!! It is only a hold but we need to acknowledge that Elephant Trophies and Lion Trophies are immoral and shouldn’t be legal to bring back to the US! Well. It shouldn’t be legal period. Let’s continue to fight and save these beauties!!! For every repost of the first image, @theellenshow will donate to @dswt! And the last image is a beautiful Elephant/Rhino life force Herkimer bracelet created by @poundjewelry which proceeds will be donated to @imire_zimbabwe !!! I’m getting mine today. Show your support even if it is just the images! Tiny changes create huge shifts. #bekindtoelephants #bekindtolions #stopthetrophyhunt #nopoaching #saynotopoaching

We must respect and love ALL of God’s creation. Please repost/share and hashtag! #bekindtoelephants🐘 @theellenshow will donate to @dswt 💕 #bekindtoeverykind #veganfortheanimals #veganislove #lovethesecreatures #stopthetrophyhunt

Trumps decision not to protect the elephants is a step closer to not protecting all other animals. •

Donald Trump's legacy will be enough to put him on the shortlist of worst Presidents in the history of The United States of America. And we, as a nation we are implicit in his deeds by allowing him to continue violating our Country and the land itself. It still remains debatable if this man was even legitimately voted into the office he now defiles. Nonetheless he has has proposed to abandoned programs and services that help people in need including the elderly. He has turning a blind eye to the violence and brutality that he has inspired in this nation, and that is a form of cowardice and cruelty. He has churned up all the hatred, bigotry and ugliness from their dark places in the American psyche. He sets the tone that allowes and enables white supremacist to toss off the sheets they once hid behind.
We have had more mass shootings on US soil, by people who should not own guns let alone semi-automatic weapons, and there is no public discussion or backlash.
And it's all OK, as long as the stock market is doing well, and we don't have to take a hard look at our culture, our laws, the whole hypocrisy of the this horrendous time in our country’s history. And now he has taken nepotism to a whole different level by allowing elephants (who’s very existence is already threatened as a species) to be used as trophies for his stupid, monstrous, psychopathic maniac of a son. #Unbearable #monsters #savetheelephants #protect #gentlegiants #elephants #elephantsofinstagram #peoplehavethepower #stopthetrophyhunt #standupfortheelephants #nolongeraproudamerican #shamefulleadership #resist #mounttrumpsheadonawall #whoarethesemonsters #anger #sad #sadbadman 😡😡😡

This video of a peaceful Alaskan Brown Bear will never get old for me. It breaks my heart that hunters senselessly kill them for fun as is evident from this #BrownBearHunting tag 💔 .

Bears are extremely misunderstood beings. There’s a reason we all had teddy bears as children. This video is beautiful as it epitomises mutual respect and peaceful co-existence. However please never get this close to a bear. Keep your distance and respect their space and they will respect yours.

A young female enjoying a rotten pink salmon a few meters from us. All season she was so comfortable with us and by the end of the season an encounter like this was not uncommon. I hope to see her next year. Sorry for the shake, I didn't have my tripod or something to lean on when she showed up.
