Save Louisiana Black Bears From Hunters!

The Louisiana black bear population has taken a few steps back from the brink of extinction. At one point, there were only one hundred black bears left in the state. Obviously, the Endangered Species Act works because, once the bears were listed, their population made a partial recovery. There are now between 750 and 1000 black bears in Louisiana, depending on who you ask. As a consequence of this recovery, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to take Louisiana black bears off the endangered list.Trouble is, environmentalists estimate the original population was 20,000. And the existing bears are already a target of illegal hunting, according to a Sierra Club spokesperson.The black bear population is still a long way from what anyone can honestly call a true recovery. Please tell the United States Fish and Wildlife Service not to delist the bear and open hunting season on a species that is still very much struggling against oblivion.
