And Justice For All - Humans AND Non-Humans

And "Justice For All" ("as long as you are human")

Bear Attacks, Bites Two Hunters;
State to Track, Destroy Animal

A large black bear bit two Missouri archers Wednesday while the men hunted on the eastern slope of Grand Mesa, the state Division of Wildlife reported.

“We aren't releasing their names yet, but believe they went to a hospital in Glenwood Springs, where they should be treated and released,” wildlife division spokesman Todd Malmsbury said.

He said the pair, a father, 46, and his son 25, were hunting with a third man from Arkansas.

“The bear came out of the bushes and attacked the younger man, biting him on one buttock,” Malmsbury said. “His father was carrying a 44-caliber handgun, but apparently became so unnerved by the attack he ended up throwing the weapon at the bear.”

The man’s toss succeeded in getting the bear to break off attacking his son, but the animal turned on the father, biting him on the thigh.

The third man grabbed the handgun and fired a few shots, although it isn't known if he hit the animal, Malmsbury said.

Malmsbury said wildlife agents would track the bear with dogs and destroy it.

“We have a strict policy: If anyone is injured by a bear, it must be destroyed and checked for diseases,” Malmsbury said.


This case serves to illustrate the arrogance of the current human system, where animals are killed for entertainment, and "Justice For All" applies only to humans. Specifically, in this case, there is no justice for mama bear, who first lost her baby, then hunted down with dogs.

It goes deeper than even justice. It has to do with the denial of the right of a mother to defend her young. As ARAs, we must fight for this right for all mothers on Earth, of any species.

It's hunting get over it. Look at it this way, if the bear attacks a human and then see's humans as a food source it could mean trouble for other people not hunting. Let's say someone is out hiking and he/she runs into this bear (who now see's humans as a food source) and is attacked and possibly killed. It only makes sense to hunt down an animal that might want to now eat humans.
