AESRD Agrees: No New Grizzly Hunt
March 7, 2013
AWA notes with approval comments made by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (AESRD) spokesperson Nikki Booth. In a story carried by the Canadian Press, Booth reaffirms that “right now we aren’t considering any sort of grizzly hunt.” This assertion is consistent with the message previously given by AESRD. It also reaffirms a commitment to the guidelines in their own grizzly Recovery Strategy that lay out the conditions that must exist before any hunt is resumed — conditions that have not currently been met.
