Grizzlys Destroyed in Kootenays

Another reason why Grizzly Hunting should be supported, they get destroyed by COs if they infringe on livestock. Hunting a small number of grizzly bears will keep the fear of man instilled in them and keep their numbers down so there is less competition for food. It is a waste to have them destroyed, it does not generate any money for the economy and no one benefits. If they were hunted it would have generated thousands in guiding fees, thousands for the local economy ie. food, lodging, tourism etc, thousands for the taxidermy work, and thousands in licensing fees for the government. Plus if bears are hunted in a certain area, they seem to stay away from civilization because they feel pressure of being persude.
