0 0

The province is telling Bob Barker to mind his own business.

The former game show host calls the return of the spring bear hunt in Ontario "barbaric" after a 15-year absence.

However, Minister of Natural Resources David Orazietti says he's not sure where Barker is getting this facts from. The minister says what's happening this year is a proposed pilot project in 8 out of 95 zoned off regions in the province.

Orazietti says this is a question of safety with communities reporting a growing number of bears approaching humans and wandering around towns.
 
The minister wonders if Barker knows that eight other provinces and territories have full-scale bear hunts every spring.

Orazietti points to the fact that the province has tried to education people, bear -proof communities and trap bears since the hunt was cancelled in 1999.
