A consultation process is now underway on new proposed grizzly bear regulations for BC.
The government earlier announced kit was ending trophy hunting for grizzlies November 30th, and end all hunting for the bears in the Great Bear Rainforest.
It’s now calling on the public to comment on two policy documents outlining the proposed regulation changes required to implement the ban.
They include changes to manage the ban in hunting areas that overlap the Great Bear Rainforest and changes that will prohibit the possession of “trophy” grizzly bear parts.
Other changes are:
* Changes that will manage prohibited grizzly bear parts;
* Changes to prohibit the trafficking of grizzly bear parts, and
* New reporting requirements for taxidermists.
The two policy documents can be reviewed at: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw
