Comment: I was told

(See in situ)

I was told

this week by an aspca officer that a bear on my private property has more right to life than I do. I'm not kidding. He said they are federally protected & if I were to shoot one, in protection of domestic animals, I could be subject to imprisonment under the federal protection laws of the bear. I asked "what about self defense of myself & property". His reply: "You MAY would be able to beat that in court".
