Every year, thousands of grizzlies are killed worldwide for entertainment. Each year, trophy hunters in British Columbia kill hundreds of grizzly bears for their heads, paws and hides.
“In the Great Bear Rainforest, First Nations groups, activists and over 90% of British Columbians oppose this cruel and inhumane hunt, and yet it still remains legal and sanctioned by the BC government.”
Those that support this slaughter claim it’s necessary to maintain balance in nature and provide economic advantages, yet conservation science and the thriving tourism and bear viewing industries suggests otherwise. Presented by Lush Cosmetics, Trophy challenges this controversial “sport” that exists across North America and asks: can we truly justify killing these animals for entertainment?
