That is your right Doc but am curious??? What is inhumane about it????. Ok dogs and humans have been "working" hand in hand for a very long time. Humans did not teach dogs to chase bears it is NATURAL. If you disagree with running bears with dogs you must also disagree with wolves being reintroduced in places they don't belong. Because it must be inhumane for the wolve to chase catch and kill helpless deer, elk, sheep, moose, goats and cattle. Or is that natural? Hmm, not sure how to answer that? You can't have your cake and eat it too. Ever watched a wolve catch one of the above mentioned animals? I have been around wildlife my entire life and I will tell you it makes even my stomach turn. At least when a hunter's dogs catch and tree a bear, it is disbatched HUMANELY. Not so much with the wolve.
On Hound Hunting

Obviously written by a (greenie) the facts listed in this article are for the most part false. Hunting has and will always play a intrical role in the management of animals. I have found that people in general find some methods of hunting barbaric. Untill it is one of their children that is harmed or killed by a wild animal from lack of management. It is then and only then that people see or understand the role that hunting plays. After that it has been my experience they cease carring about how and only want the animal in question dead. So sometimes dogs or bears or people get hurt while hunting, how many people get killed going to work. Is it the same maybe mabe not but we need to work and we need to manage animals.
