Permanently END the Elk Reduction Program hunt in Grand Teton National Park

http://jhnewsandguide.com/article.php?art_id=9276 This marks the 51st known or probable death of a Grizzly Bear in the Greater Yellowstone area this year and likely would not have occurred if the program didn't exist. It is widely known that our beloved bears are attracted to the sound of gunshots and obviously the smell of animal carcasses. It was recently that an area nearby this incident was closed due to another close call between a bear and human. There is no sound or reasonable reason in my mind that this hunt is necessary any longer and should END immediately and for good. While hunting is a vital resource, the bears, elk, and other wildlife are an even larger resource for our economy not only in Jackson, WY but the area as a whole. Millions upon millions of people come to the area from all over the country and the world and hope to see these majestical creatures. What will we do when they are gone? Hunting does not belong in our National Parks! END THE ELK REDUCTION PROGRAM IMMEDIATELY AND FOREVER
