So, the Environment ministry bureaucrats have finally woken up with ideas to stop the slaughter?

How about bears who roam between prefectures?

No pockets for mynumber cards.

Hope they can find a humane solution.

Death is better than capture. I remember travelling around Kyushu about ten years ago and seeing this bear locked in a tiny cage in a farm park. What a terrible existence. Went back ten years later and the poor thing was still there in the same cage. What is anyone supposed to gain from that?

Give the prefecture the right to bear arms!

If one reads this article, "capture" applies to the moving of bears to other areas where they are extinct or endangered. Not put into farm parks.

Gov't mulls

Whenever you see this, remember they don't actually plan on doing anything. It'll be all talk, no action.
