Karma Bites Hunter in the Ass

A Maine hunter was mauled by a bear that he was hunting with dogs.  Fortunately for him, though not the bear, he did manage to shoot the 300 pound beast before it attacked.  The hunter is expected to recover.  The most interesting part of the story is the 159 reader comments.  Some of my favorites:

Hardly a fair fight, the bear should have brought a few friends to the party...

First off - Ryan didn't make the hunting laws in this state, but he certainly abides by them. Secondly - you wouldn't be chortling so much if this had happened to someone in your family. Our poor grandmother, who is 86 yrs old, was worried sick yesterday, waiting for news. So was Ryan's mother (who suffers from cancer), Ryan's father (who has heart trouble), his wife, his two young children, his sister, his brother, his nieces, his nephews, his aunts, his uncles, his cousins and his friends. GET THIS THROUGH YOUR SICK, TREE-HUGGING HEADS: BEAR HUNTING IS LEGAL. BEAR HUNTING WITH DOGS IS LEGAL. BEAR BAITING IS LEGAL. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS, THEN TAKE YOUR BLEEDING HEARTS TO THE POLLS AND CHANGE THE LAWS. In the meantime, to take pleasure in the fear & agony that we all suffered yesterday as we awaited news on his condition is a hell of a lot sicker than a few hunters legally hunting a creature that none of you would want in your own back yards.

"Would you be chortling so much if he'd been killed?" Actually, yes

i have seen "hunters" using dogs to hunt bear. Usually consists of electronic collars for the dogs and a tracking device. the hunters sit in their pickup trucks until the dogs corner or tree the bear. then the mighty hunter strolls (on his four wheeler) into the woods and completes the hunt. pathetic.

I think 'Maine Hunter Bearly Bitten' would've been a better headline.

Look at the cesspool of comments from the effete Southern Maine denizens. They truly would revel in a human killed by a bear, since they have no moral or rational bearing. An accurate little snapshot of fluff-for-brains and refuse-for-morals contemporary liberalism...

Maybe we should be more concerned with the human rights of the young workers in China who made your laptops than the welfare of a bear during hunting season. Just a thought....

HUH? A two inch story about a hunter getting bit by Smokie the bear garners 123 posts and counting? I read a couple of them...surely there are better things to do...?

Was it a bear or Paul LePage?

And, if you didn't get the joke in the last comment, you obviously didn't read my previous post.
