Shocked by bear kill at Pallant Creek

  • Jul. 2, 2008 7:00 p.m.

The shot was perfectly lined up. After watching all day, the big black bear across Pallant Creek was finally in range and a woman at Moresby Camp was about to snap an amazing photograph – when another blast rang out. “The hunter beat her to it,” said Moresby Island regional district representative Travis Glasman. The bear went down in front of her and now, says Mr. Glasman, he and others on the Moresby Island Management Committee are trying to make sure the area is made into a no shooting zone. Mr. Glasman is corresponding with Ministry of Tourism, Sport and the Arts recreation officer Carl Johansen about establishing a two-kilometre radius no hunting zone that would encompass recreation sites like Mosquito Lake and Moresby Camp. Mr. Glasman said he called the guiding company that holds the two commercial licenses on the islands and asked them not to shoot in this area in the meantime. The owner told him this wouldn’t be a problem, says Mr. Glasman, but hunting season ended soon after anyway.
