Search for wounded bear shot by bowhunters under way in Kitsap Co.

KITSAP COUNTY, Wash. — Officers with the State Department of Fish and Wildlife are searching the residential area of Port Orchard for a wounded 300-pound bear.

The animal attacked two men after they tried to kill it, and search dogs have been brought to a gravel road just off Berry Lake Road to help track it down.

“This bear has just been frequenting this area according to the neighbors, and these gentlemen had a hunting license, and they decided to do it,” Sergeant Ted Jackson with the State Department of Fish and Wildlife said.

After the bear was shot with a bow and arrow on Saturday, the animal went dashing back into woods. Hours later, the men found the bear not far away and that’s when the situation turned dangerous.

“The bear started to turn near the father and son, the father again shot it with his bow, the bear went after him, and then turned and went after the son,” Jackson said.

Both men were treated for scratches and puncture wounds.

Meanwhile, the injured bear is still lurking around the area only a mile away from Sidney Glen Elementary.

“We’d like to get this thing out of here before schools starts,” said Jackson.

Area resident Ken Bruney is keeping a close eye out while working on his property.

“If you wound an animal you better call somebody, or do something about it,” Bruney said.

Fish and Wildlife officials say the bear hunters did not break the law, but they should have contacted authorities sooner since the animal is dangerous.

“We don’t want a wounded bear out there,” Jackson said. “You could walk through the brush and it could be sitting out here and somebody else could get attacked. We need to get it out of here and make sure we can find it.”

Officials say to never approach a wounded bear, and they are asking residents to be cautious and call 911 if you see the bear.

The search will continue until they find the wounded animal.

One man dies after hunting accident

MARTIN COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) – Kentucky State Police said Brad Meade’s body was found at 9 a.m. off of Pigeon Roost Road in the Pilgrim community after a hunting accident.

Brad Meade, 22, died from a bow and arrow. They do add the incident was accidental. Martin County Sheriff John Kirk tells WYMT that Meade must have fallen when his arrow was loaded in his bow, but strapped around his back. Meade reportedly pulled the arrow out of his leg, wrapped his shirt around the wound, and tried to make it back to his vehicle.

The body has been sent to Frankfort for an autopsy. Kentucky State Police are investigating.

Dr. Palmer Should Die

For the crimes he committed against Cecil the half-tame Lion—luring, baiting, impaling and pursuing him for 40 long hours. For being a sadistic, narcissistic, psychopathic bow-hunter willing to put another sentient animal through sheer hell for a trophy, Walter Palmer DDS should die. And his accomplices—the guides, along with whoever shot another lion today–should join him on the gallows.

They should all be dragged into a court of law and sentenced to death ASAP. But unfortunately, that won’t happen. Walter Palmer and his ilk, his cohorts in crime, will probably live out their long lives and get off with a slap on the wrist; a fine, a public service sentence and possibly have their hunting licenses revoked for a while.

Why? Because they’re human beings—the most sacred of God’s creatures; the pinnacles of evolution and the reason it’s all here (sarcasm intended)—and a lion is just a lion. An animal: ours to do with as we see fit.

It’s the self-imposed law of the land, and there’ll be no justice for animals as long as speciesism rules.

Shot with an arrow then chased for two days until he was skinned and beheaded: Zimbabwe’s most famous lion, Cecil, becomes a hunting trophy


  • Cecil the Lion, 13, was one of the stars of Hwange National Park 
  • The lion was shot with an arrow by a hunter, outside the park’s border
  • Badly wounded, the lion was left for two days before he was killed 
  • The hunter skinned Cecil the Lion and cut off the head for a hunting trophy 

With his striking mane and relaxed manner around the cameras, Cecil the lion was one of the stars of Zimbabwe’s biggest national park.

Now park rangers and safari lovers have been left devastated after the much-loved lion was horrifically killed by a hunter.

After wounding the great beast with an arrow, the depraved hunter spent two days tracking down the injured lion before killing the animal with a rifle. After skinning the corpse, the lion’s noble head was hacking off and taken by the hunter as a hunting trophy.

The death of the 13-year-old big cat has left conservators deeply worried for the safety of several lion cubs, who are now living unprotected in the park.


Same Backyard Buck Shot With Arrow Again This Year!!

Many of you may remember this event and photo from last year:


Now it’s happened again–same place, same deer, same psychotic bloodsport. Here’s the new account and photo from the same woman who reported this last year…

“If anyone ever tells me again that the poachers “make the law abiding hunters look bad” I’m going to punch them in the face and then shoot them with an arrow. All hunting is evil. Poachers have killed 3 deer here (illegally on our property) this year. One hunter literally tried to kill me a couple of weeks ago with his truck. Last year, we had a buck (named “Buck”) suffer with an arrow in his back for two months before it came out and he miraculously healed. I wish I could have healed like he did. Buck showed up today WITH ANOTHER FUCKING ARROW in his hind end. I’m going to have a stroke. I was chasing these f#ckers since Thursday as they’ve been lurking around our property. I can’t believe Buck was shot again. I literally can’t take this. Not one more day.”

Hunting Accident Kills One


TRANSYLVANIA COUNTY, N.C. — One man is dead after a hunting accident in Transylvania County on Thursday night.

Deputies say a friend of George Harley Case Jr., 58, reportedly mistook Case for a deer while the two were hunting together and shot and killed him with a crossbow.

It happened near Lyda Creek Road. When first responders arrived around 7:45, Case, of Pisgah Forest, was dead.

According to hunting regulations, hunters are not required to wear blaze orange during archery deer season. Deer hunting season for archers opened last Saturday. This is the first incident that’s been reported so far in the mountains.

“They weren’t doing anything wrong, they didn’t have orange on, but in North Carolina during bow season you don’t have to wear orange. That’s just during the gun and rifle season,” Capt. Kevin Creasman with Transylvania Co. Sheriff’s Dept. said.

The two men had been hunting for a couple of hours on private property about a mile into the woods when the incident happened.

Hunting officials say said both men were experienced hunters. The incident is under investigation, but right now no charges have been filed. According to deputies, the shooting was an accident.

The name of the man who shot the arrow has not been released. North Carolina Wildlife is also taking a look at this case, and could possibly bring charges against that hunter.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday in Winston-Salem.

Wisconsin boy shoots father while hunting illegally

By Meg Jones of the Journal Sentinel

Sept. 22, 2014

Marathon City — An 11-year-old boy hunting illegally mistook his father for a turkey and shot him on Sunday, authorities said.

The 42-year-old father was in stable condition after he was wounded in the upper chest with a .22-caliber rifle around 5:30 p.m. Sunday in the Town of Marathon.

That type of rifle is not authorized for hunting turkeys, and 11-year-olds are too young to hunt unless they’re monitored closely by an adult, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources hunting safety administrator Jon King told Wausau television station WAOW-TV.

The boy’s mother was more than 50 feet away at the time and should have been “within arm’s reach,” helping the boy identify his target, for the child to be hunting legally, King said in a telephone interview from Madison.

“It is tough to call it a hunting accident,” King said. “Nobody had a hunting license. Nobody should have been out in the woods that day.”

The man was shot from about 100 yards away on private property. King told the Wausau television station that there’s a good chance citations will be issued.

“Ultimately, the adults in this case are responsible for this young man’s actions,” King said.

The Department of Natural Resources is investigating the shooting as well as two other shootings over the weekend — in Waushara and Douglas counties involving a woodcock hunter and bowhunter.
