Trump administration to make it easier for hunters to kill Alaska bear cubs and wolf pups

Hunters will soon be allowed to venture into national parks in Alaska and engage in practices that conservation groups say are reprehensible: baiting hibernating bears from their dens with doughnuts to kill them and using artificial light such as headlamps to scurry into wolf dens to slaughter mothers and their pups.

In a final rule that is expected to be published Tuesday in the Federal Register, the Trump administration will end a five-year-old ban on the practices, which also include shooting swimming caribou from a boat and targeting animals from airplanes and snowmobiles. It would take effect 30 days after being published.

State officials primarily composed of hunters in Alaska argued that the October 2015 regulations ordered by the Obama administration infringed on traditional native hunting practices and were more restrictive than what is allowed on state land.

National Park Service Deputy Director David Vela said in a statement that the federal government will defer to Alaska’s wildlife management on national preserves. “The amended rule will support the Department’s interest in advancing wildlife conservation goals and objectives, and in ensuring the state of Alaska’s proper management of hunting and trapping in our national preserves, as specified in the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act,” Vela said.

But conservationists called the changes inhumane.

Inhumane? This is beyond inhumane and is some truly sick shit. The "brave" hunters who need to prove their manhood by killing cubs and pups should have their precious bang sticks shoved up their right-wing gun-worshiping asses. Jesus! What will the fucking Trumpers do next -- create an open season on humans who don't look like, think like, or talk like their uneducated, ignorant, despicable Trump ass-kissing MAGAT buddies?
