Court Rules Spring Bear Hunt Can Proceed

For the first time in 15 years, there will be a limited spring bear hunt in northern Ontario.

A judge has sided with the provincial government on the spring bear hunt.  

A request to have the hunt delayed pending a judicial review has been thrown out of court.

The hunt will now go ahead as scheduled on May 1st.

The Ontario Federation Of Anglers and Hunters says it's pleased the court application by Zoocheck Canada and Animal Alliance of Canada has been dismissed and the federation looks forward to a safe and successful hunt.
