Donate Funds in Memory of Grizzly Bear — Not on Behalf of “Bear-Mauling Victim”

Steve Hillebrand/U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

A grizzly bear was executed in Nome, Alaska, last month after defending himself from a trio of murderous, mouth-breathing rednecks. Unfortunately, so-called “bear-mauling victim” Wes Perkins — as described in a May 18 Anchorage Daily News headline — survived.

From a May 17 Anchorage Daily News story: “A grizzly bear mauled the former fire chief for the city of Nome during a weekend hunting trip … Wes Perkins had been tracking the bear with friends on snowmachines Sunday east of the Seward Peninsula city when the big grizzly charged, according to Alaska State Troopers. Perkins’ companions shot and killed the animal during the attack.”

Alaska State Troopers Information Officer Megan Peters was quoted in the May 17 Anchorage Daily News story as saying: “We have no indication that it was anything other than a tragic hunting accident.”

Really?

Mr. Perkins being “mauled” by the grizzly bear he and his hillbilly friends set out to murder was neither “tragic” nor was it an “accident.”

I, too, would have taken a pound of flesh from Mr. Perkins had he and his bloodthirsty hunting buddies tried to take my life.

The bear’s execution, at the hands of unevolved assassins determined to kill — and no doubt hell-bent on avenging the animal’s “attack” on Mr. Perkins — is tragic.

Ms. Peters’ use of the word “accident” must have been a suggestion that the bear hadn’t been told to just stand there and make a good target for the hunters’ bullets.

Adding insult to the bear’s memory is the fact that money is being raised on Mr. Perkins’ behalf.

From a May 17 KTUU-TV story: “An account for Perkins’ family has been set up by the Nome Volunteer Fire Department at Credit Union 1. All donations will be transferred directly to his family.”

Today, I’m encouraging you, dear reader, to make a donation, in the grizzly bear’s memory, to Defenders of Wildlife. One way to do so is to “Adopt a Brown Bear.”

    The only accident in this case was this conception of Wes Perkins. Snowmobiles and rifles against an unarmed unevolved animal? And when the animal defends it’s territory it’s classified as an attack? I’m sorry, did I miss the part where the animal entered the Perkins’ house?

    Scott,

    Regarding your interest in seeing me “in the wilderness of the Seward Peninsula” to see how I might fare “in a similar situation,” I can promise you that I’ll never be in a “situation” similar to the one in which Mr. Perkins found himself.

    I have a healthy respect for nature and would never set out to murder a grizzly bear or a member of any other species.

    Unevolved people like Mr. Perkins and his hunting buddies are among those who believe that humans are entitled to hold dominion over other animal species. I don’t share their opinion. Therefore, I celebrate when a measure of karma is added to the balance.

    Scott. If you believe David is an asshole, that’s fine. However, I don’t really see where David showed ignorance or lack of logic. Bears, being mammals, as I am sure you are aware, have the same limbic systems as us and the limbic system processes most emotions. The hunters were attempting to shoot an animal that has the capacity to suffer physically and emotionally. Therefore, empathy toward the bear would be a logical response. And anger at hunting might be a logical response, provided you value the animals life at all. Now, whether the hunter deserved what he intended to inflict is a matter of opinion, but such conclusions don’t seem illogical. Therefore, logical people are likely ok around Mr. Brensilver. Don’t try to make an illogical argument about logic. It makes you sound silly. As does your random prejudice about CT.

    I am always amazed at how seemingly unaware people become, and how pompous and self-righteous they sound, when they begin to judge others from the safety and comfort of their towers far removed – previously “civilized” – from that which was once wilderness. Wes Perkins is a good man. Lack of sympathy for his condition, and criticism of his actions, hardly recommends one’s own humanity. But perhaps that’s the whole point?

    Another way to look at this for those of “tender heart” as it relates to bears, is that the death of this large boar means that more young bears can survive. Yes, unlike humans which, as bad as it is, sometimes get sex for pay, bears will kill the young so that the sow will come into estrus again and can be bred. (And not without cost to the defending mothers sometimes either.) In other words, they kill for sex. In this case less is more.

    You might be money ahead by seeking donations on behalf of the numerous cubs soon to be killed by mature male bears.

    Your declaration that Wes Perkins “is a good man” does not make it so, and the offense you take at my disagreement is simpleminded, as is your suggestion that geography and relative safety and comfort have anything to do with the basis of my opinion. I place great value on what’s left of our wilderness, and I loathe those who rape it in the interests of personal or corporate Manifest Destiny.

    Humanity, Mark, is the problem. I have no sympathy for Mr. Perkins or anyone else who suffers injury in the process of murdering a member of another animal species.

    Just have to say to David that no rational thinking person I know, whether s/he is a vegan, vegetarian, or subsistence hunter (as I am) would agree that what happened to Wes Perkins was not tragic in many ways.

    And the ridiculous bombastic false analogy you use, David, that you would have taken a pound of flesh from Mr. Perkins had he and his buddies tried to take your life…anthropomorphism only goes so far.

    Where is the line, David? Checking the fishnet to feed the family, the fisherman falls in and gets trapped in the net and drowns and you are jumping with glee and expounding upon how had that fisherman tried to murder you you’d have taken a pound of flesh?

    C’mon, by all means expound on your ontological viewpoints here and how they really make sense. Good luck.

    There seems to be a little debate going on as to whether or not David B. is ignorant. Well, I can point out at least one example of his ignorance; the correct definition of “murder” is the killing of a person -in other words, homicide-. To call the killing of an animal, murder, does show ignorance. When a male brown bear kills a brown bear cub so that he can mate the sow is that considered “murder” or homicide? of course not. If you doubt this look it up in any reputable dictionary. Mark

    David,

    In one of your above comments you write, “I will let nature take care of itself.” Does that exclude us, the human, from nature? Many people hunt for subsistence to feed, clothe, and care for their family, much like a predator in the wild does. We happen to use more evolved processes, and live a more evolved life than the basic predator; but does that exclude us from being a part of nature? Seems to me you are against hunting in its entirety, which I believe makes you ignorant and careless.

    Bushrat,

    Please explain the “many ways” in which Mr. Perkins being injured by a grizzly bear was tragic.

    My viewpoint shouldn’t be difficult to understand. I don’t place a higher value on human life than I do the lives of other animal species. When rednecks like Mr. Perkins and his hunting buddies set out — armed and riding “snowmachines,” as described by the Anchorage Daily News — to kill a bear against whom the odds of survival in those circumstances are stacked, I root for the bear. And when the bear (who, in this case, was killed), in self-defense, injures or kills one of his pursuers, I like to think that a measure of karma has been added to the balance.

    The death of the fisherman in your hypothetical example strikes me as a case of natural selection.

    Perkins was in critical condition in an induced coma, his family was not sure if he would live or die, now it appears he will likely lose an eye, not sure what other permanent injuries he will have, all tragic imo in many ways.

    Root for the bear, that is your prerogative, but to state in your post that it was unfortunate that Perkins survived the attack shows a complete lack of empathy and respect for his family and friends and a a cruel and vindictive nature within yourself.

    You believe in karma, well then please accept that you can’t just say these type of things on your blog without some measure of karmic justice coming back your way.

    Yes I did see the links, I also clicked on them and saw where they went. Just because the links don’t say “David Brensilver’s checking account” doesn’t mean that it’s not where all or some of that money will end up. Those of us who understand wildlife management, as well as hunt respectfully, also understand that monetary donations to animal rights organizations are basically just salaries for executives and associates of such organizations, and I am confident you are somehow affiliated. That is why wildlife research is always funded and performed by state and federal departments, they actually spend money on it. That is to say, the research that I see happening here in Alaska, since I am a lifelong Alaska resident, with an idea of how things work here, and with a grip on reality.

    I might suggest that before you judge others you take a little look at yourself. I see in the photo of you that you’re sitting on a hardwood floor (looks like oak, and don’t try to tell me it’s a faux finish). How many bird nests and baby birds died when that grove of oaks where cut down? I also see that you smoke. Do you have any idea the chemicals and other pollutants the tobacco industry puts into the environment. I’m just guessing that you live in a very unnatural, urban environment, and have a much larger carbon footprint than many of the people you rail against, you know, those “mouth breathing hill billies”. I’ll bet many if not most of them have a much better understanding of the natural environment since many of them actually live in it.

    Last year while I was at work, on the north slope, the oilfield, uh oh……. My co-workers and I watched a grizzly bear slaughter a mother Musk-ox, who was with two babies, about 250 yards from the back of our shop. He took her down violently, with brute force. Several times he attempted to chase down her young and kill them too, but each time he turned away the mother would move and he would have to go back and attempt to finish her off. After roughly 20 minutes of this the young were well out of danger and the mother was dead for sure, so the bear went off behind a grassy mound to watch her for a while…about two hours. He then came back to enjoy her, which was almost as gruesome as the killing. Her young were flown to the wildlife refuge near Portage Glacier, which is operated by some wonderful and smart biologists/hunters. Im still looking for an article written by animal rights concious grizzly bears, chastising their own kind for doing what is in their nature.

    Yes Jane, in many parts of rural Alaska bear meat is the only source of fat people can obtain when living a subsistence lifestyle, as caribou and moose are quite lean, and it’s too fat to the coast to get a seal or whale. That’s fat is important as it gets quite cold in those places. Yes, some do hunt for sport, and that is a personal choice, not open for judgement by any of us. Regardless of the claim I read on the defenders of wildlife website, there is no shortage of bears in Alaska, they are nowhere near endangered.

    I’m your biggest fan! I fully share your opinion. I am not native English so please forgive me my spelling mistakes, if any ;-)

    Please keep on doing what you do.

    What kind of douche even writes an article like this. You don’t have to agree with the legal action the hunters were doing and can even oppose it. But to willfully wish them death, etc.. because you value an animals life vs humans. I hope a freaking bear gets ahold of you, then well see what you write… Freaking scum of the earth..
