OMG. what is wrong with these people?

CULLOWHEE, N.C. - Police at Western Carolina University and wildlife officials were investigating the discovery early Monday of a dead bear cub draped with a pair of Barack Obama campaign signs.

Leila Tvedt, associate vice chancellor for public relations, said Monday night that maintenance workers found the 75-pound bear cub shot to death in front of the school's administration building at the entrance to campus. The Obama yard signs were stapled together and placed over the bear's head, Tvedt said.

The bear had been shot in the head, Tvedt said.

  • 21 AM on Oct. 21, 2008 by: BlueFrogMama To play devil's advocate, why is it anymore cruel than hunting? The article said it is bear season in NC. The bear wasn't tortured, it was shot just like any other hunted animal. It's certainly weird how the bear was left, but I don't see why it is necessarily cruel, unless a person thinks that hunting itself is cruel.


     Do you not see what is so disgusting about this? A BLACK bear cub was killed and covered with Obama signs. If you cannot make the connection here, you are beyond help.

  • "Western Carolina University deplores the inappropriate behavior that has led to this troubling incident," Tvedt said. "We cannot speculate on the motives of the people involved nor who those people might be. Campus police are cooperating fully with authorities to investigate this matter."

    University police called in state Wildlife Resources officials to remove the body and help in the investigation.

    Bear season is under way in western North Carolina.

  • Sometimes, there are no words and there is no reason. Some people simply have no conscience. The bear cub was an innocent baby creature. How very sad.

  • The majority of hunters are intending to eat what they hunt. Killing any animal arbitrarily is cruel. Killing for sport is cruel. What these people did was cruel.

  • I am just going to say one thing... We all know who they are voting for! Let's just hope all McCain supporters don't go out and kill a bear to make a point that isn't there!

  • like bluefrogmama, said it could just be a hunter bear that was used to make a statement.
    i think it's pretty awful nonetheless .

  • If you are going to hunt for the intention of meat that's one thing but hunting for sport or for cheap thrills is wrong.
