Buist's recent letter of concern over the two rescued
grizzly cubs was truly touching when you understand that
as a trapper he deals mainly in killing wildlife.
course, were those cubs just a few months older he and
a trapper buddy could have easily also killed them for
he is the same Pete Buist who as a member of the Board
of Game supports Ralph Seekins' "Bear Control" measures that allows
the hunting of 11 month-old cubs. (These measures demonstrate that when it comes
to understanding wildlife management and ethics Seekins is out of his depth on
a wondrous flexibility of character that someone such
as Buist can dispense heartfelt sympathy (hypocritically
wrapped in pro-bear-baiting propaganda) with one hand
while with the other he can take aim at slightly older
cubs whose misfortunes bring them within killing range.
