The Coastal Humane Society, Animal Refuge League, Animal Wildlife Society, Wildlife Alliance of Maine, the Humane Society of the United States, and a group calling themselves Mainers for Fair Bear Hunting are seeking to ban three bear hunting practices: hunting bears with traps, hounds or over bait. These groups have also asked restaurants, bakeries, and grocery stores to quit supplying leftover food for bear baiting. This marks the second time in the past decade that animal rights groups have attempted to end these practices through legal challenges. Ending the three practices was rejected by a statewide ballot measure of 53 percent to 47 percent in 2004. These anti-bear hunting groups seek to bring their argument to a vote again in 2014.
