Potter County Leads State With 256 Bears Killed

BEAR HUNTERS CONTINUE TO HAVE GREAT SUCCESS AFIELD

Bear exceeding 700 pounds taken in Monroe County on second day

HARRISBURG - Two days of bear hunting have produced a preliminary harvest of 2,518 bears, according to Pennsylvania Game Commission reports.

In 2007, 1,638 bears passed through check stations the first two days. In 2006, 2,185 bears were taken. In 2005, when the state record bear harvest was set, agency personnel processed 2,875 bears through the first two days of season; 2,262 in 2004; 2,299 in 2003; and 2,022 in 2002.

The top bear harvest county in the state after the first two days was Potter with 256 (87 in 2007), followed by Tioga, 205 (102); Lycoming, 195 (97); McKean, 126 (80); and Clearfield, 98 (70). More...

Where are the animal rights activits?? Killing all of these bears just for sport is very disgusting. I also heard if they shoot the mother bear they need to kill the cubs too. If they were killing these bears for food, I would think differently, but just for sport, it's disgusting. Don't any of these hunters have pets, ie dogs, cats etc?

Yawn. Wake up. Bear meat is delicious. The butcher shops are hustling right now cutting up bears. If yer gonna comment, at least know what the hell you are talking about first.

It really upsets me to see all of the dead animals that get hit by cars too. I think you should quit driving because it kills innocent animals. Are you a vegetarian? If not...you need to just go quietly into the night.

We no longer have our pets.We use them for target practice prior to the opening of "Teddy Bear" season.

Bears eat cats, dogs, deer and tear up everything they can--birdfeeders, garbage cans,etc.

Wild animals are not pets.

They may be "cute" to see in their own environment but are wild just the same.

It is not like there is an "Open Season" on these animals year round for heavens sakes.

If these bears were not hunted to control the population they would die of disease, hunger and or be the cause of many motor vehicle accidents.

I saw one atop a yahoo's car at Sheetz, It musta been a whole 4ft stretched out, paw to paw.

It musta been a tough battle to kill this one huh?

Bears and Bobcats are a couple of the animals that kill fawns every year. This isn't the 1600's, if humans didn't control the population they would starve instead. If you are looking for a"tough battle" try removing your head from your butt.

Joe Mamma. Thats funny! But, I don't think the impossible can be done.

joe is right , you just do not appreciate the techinical expertise and wiley cunning demeanor it takes to bring down a bear cub and you sure cant appreciate the feeling it gives you to bag one of these babys.

These "Hunters" brag about shooting a 50 lb Black Bear. What king of Sport is that?

I for one am sick of seeing so many bear and so few deer. We happened to see a bear chasing 3 deer and would guess the out-come was a very tasty meal for the bear.
Coyotes, bear and bobcats could get thinned out and give the deer a chance.

Your comment makes no sense...so the bear don't kill the deer...the other hunters will...either way you all get your jollies killing poor defenseless animals.

How was that steak you had last night?Fish fry anyone?How about that Turkey Day bird?I forgot,most of them enjoy jumping into the pot,or they just keel over cleaned and ready to eat.At least hunters do their own killing!The rest pay to avoid the reality.

Thats a fact...at least the deer and bear have a chance to run away, unlike the live chickens that they pull out of a pen and throw into the processor to be gutted and plucked or the mass slaughter of cows and pigs while they are in confinement. Next time you eat a chicken nugget or bite into a cheeseburger, you need to think about the innocent animal that died wihtout a chance. I think the animal rights activists need to spend their time on the people that have dogs tied up for their whole lifes and only get some attention when the owner decides to take them some food and water avery day and gives them a pat on the head.
