Do Not Shoot The Bear. Let It Kill You

In Life on December 23, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: , ,

A Slovak hunter might go to jail for shooting a bear. The man took part in a legal deer hunt when a huge bear emerged from the bushes and ran towards the hunter. He shot the bear twice in obvious self-defense.

But you need a special approval from the Ministry of Environment to shoot a bear. If you do it without the paper, it makes it illegal.

Here is the Slovak government at work. Of course the law applies to bear HUNTING, not for shooting in self-defense. So next time a bear comes to a valley farm, which bears often do in Slovakia, and it runs towards the owner’s kid who plays in their own back yard, the farmer must scare it away with a pitchfork??
