Hunters shoot bear dead in front of horrified tourists
Pamela Locke, her husband and 13-year-old son were among the tourists -- some just four years-old -- left shocked by the hunters in Alaska.... They parked with the other vehicles and walked to the guardrail to see a young male brown bear in the river below the embankment. An Alaska State Trooper patrol car was also at the scene. Mrs Locke said another vehicle parked in the lay-by and two men in camouflage armed with hunting rifles got out and started heading toward the bear.... She said the men shot the bear twice in the backside, and it rolled down the hill and up by the side of the highway. She added: "He wasn't dead at that point, with all of us standing there with a wounded brown bear on the highway.... Mrs Locke said the troopers got into their patrol car to leave after the bear was dead, but she flagged them down.... "It was like you could have been wearing a clown suit and shot this bear. It was not a hunt. I equate it to shoving my way through a zoo and shooting a bear in a cage. "I'm just disgusted at the whole situation. My family supports ethical hunting, but this is anything but sportsmanlike. And any decent hunter knows if you don't have a clean shot you don't shoot. It took at least five shots to put it down, aiming up the hill while it was running away.
