Bear Referendum: Op-Ed by Robert Fisk, Jr. - Scare Tactics Print E-mail

Bears are gentle, elusive. Claims that they’ll attack Mainers are unsupported
Robert Fisk, Jr.

Published 10/27/14
Bangor Daily News

In the 2004 bear referendum, the opposition decided its best strategy for winning was to scare voters.

Instead of trying to defend unethical hunting and inhumane practices that demean Maine’s true hunting tradition, it was decided that it would be more effective to use misrepresentations, self-serving data and false advertisements. It worked. The proponents lost narrowly in 2004 as they could not overcome this alarmist strategy.

Bear hunting in Maine is an ugly business involving extreme cruelty

Robert Fisk Jr.
Published: 10/17/14
Kennebec Journal

The driving theme to ban the hunting of Maine black bears with bait, hounds and traps is the level of cruelty involved. Not all hunting practices are equal. The opposition never coherently answers when asked about the cruelty of these practices and inevitably goes into diversionary mode to say it is about animal protection extremists wanting to end all hunting.
