I believe they are wild bears with a tracking device on them

I guess I thought it was cool to see anything born in the wild. One does not see this ever day.

I going to get a couple hamsters and film them having offspring, maybe the neighbor will let me film his dogs having pups. Domesticated hand fed bears are not research, they are pets.

Now gods forbid they die in the den as some cubs do. If such a traumatic yet natural tragedy happens it was most likely due to the stress of last year’s hunting season.

I have never read that they are not wild bears!! Nothing said either about them being in a pen or high wure cage.

I guess if one does not want to see it, then don't go there. Also been up to 20,000 viewing at one time. Many people must be bored.

Most times there are 5,000 plus people viewing this so someone must be interested.

Maybe you should post your video of your pet hamsters and we could see justy how many have interest in that!! Doubt 20,000 at one time.

Thinking the same thing.

I wonder how many of those 20K viewers want to shut down bear hunting altogether.

Bear the answer would be none if those 20K would crawl into that den and snuggle up with those little squirts. That would be there last act on this earth.

Don't know how wild or tame they are but they are out and about. Hope was shot by a hunter last year. Jewels moms younger sister. lol It's a family affair. So I guess Hope was Jewels aunt. I think doing this they just set themselves uo for dissapointment and tears.

Could happen but one never knows. They do have radio collars on and they also know that the bear could get shot by a hunter anyways.

Part of the chance one takes to do the research.

I have no idea and I am not concerned about that. I am sure there could be some tax dollars coming from a research grant. Thats seems to be how these research programs do work.

I guess next time I see one of these video's, I will keep it to myself that way eyeguy, you will not have to be so concerned about a bad thing.

Harvey,

Do some of your own research on Lynn Rogers, the creator of this whole nightmare. Lynn is a piece of work, The only thing I can appreciate from the whole bear center was getting Ely named the coolest small town in the nation last year, all because of lily. Otherwise I have no time for the pompis jacka$$. Most of those 20,000 have never seen a bear before or know anything about them. Most likely all people from overseas that just see them as Winnie the Pooh!!! Anytime a person can walk in the woods and say "here bear, here bear" and have one of these "wild bear" come up and feed from the hand is hardly a wild bear. Sorry for the rant.

Yes it is neat to see the images from the den, but it is not needed, let nature do what nature knows.

I posted a link on the Lily page, not controversial in the least, simply a story about the chinese media talking about bears crying over their dead leader...They pulled my post off the site, and sent me an explanation...thought I'd share it with you so you could see another side of what these people are promoting. Now for perspective, she is talking about a nicely posed photo of me sitting behind my deer harvested this last season. It is the very small profile pic that accompanies any post you make on FB. They occasionaly post photos of dead animals in their updates, such as one of them sitting on top a half eaten bloody deer carcass, another of a vole killed by a mink and left on a branch, etc. so their claim of not allowing "dead animals" on the site are rediculous. They also display at least a dozen "dead" taxidery subjects in the bear center.

We appreciate your interest in Lily the Black Bear. We read with interest your link about the Chinese Bears and agree that it is not likely true. Since this is a family friendly page, we have been asked to not have photos of dead animals on the page, even in profile pics so your post was removed. We are happy for you to be posting on the page, just not with that photo.

Thank you for understanding.

Anna, I am greatly upset with the fact that WRI has set guidlines on the FB site with such incredible anti-hunting bias.

My post was entertaining and certainly not inflamitory in any way. I know Lynn and Sue well, and have had their assurance that they support hunting. Of course, nothing is more "family Friendly" than a family based activity like hunting.

If this is truly where they stand, then it most certainly gives me pause on the support I have given them in the past. I stood up for Lynn when he was charged with hunter harrassment in the Kevin Nathan case, I have insisted that none of my hunting party shoots the collared bears while we hunt the area, and have spoken with many other hunters in the area, to encourage their cooperation as well. I can't even begin to tell you how upset this little slight has made me.

Again, I do not blame you personally, as I am sure this is in line with the rules set forth by Lynn and Sue. I assure you my dissapointment is with WRI, not with you personally. Thank you for letting me know where, I, and hunters in general stand with the site.

Dear James,

I’ve given a lot of thought to the message I sent you yesterday. Profile photos are personal. They represent a person and are often chosen carefully. You are rightfully sensitive about being told how you can represent yourself.

First let me assure you that an overriding piece of guidance we (the mods) have been given by Dr. Rogers and Sue is that this page is NOT anti-hunting. We are to allow opinions from all groups so long as they are expressed respectfully.

In general, we have found hunters to be sensitive to the feelings of others and no longer display dead animals in public. Displaying one on your personal Facebook page is not an issue, but displaying one on a public Facebook page isn’t much different than displaying it on the hood of your car.It's 'in your face' and many find it offensive. We have even found that some people who support hunting are offended.

Lily's page is not a hunting page or an anti-hunting page. Many fans do not understand or like hunting—but WRI has never been shy about their support of hunting and the need for hunting to manage wildlife populations.

We can support hunting without promoting it. Hunting is not what we're about. We are about education and research.

We hope there is a photo you would be happy to use as your profile picture that does not include a dead animal. We would welcome your posts.

Anna

Here is the profile pic I was using. Of course it was only about 1cm x 1cm at the edge of my post, not this large.

      I haven't seen any dead minnows or evidence of spiny waterfleas in Frazier Bay this year. Any advice for fishing Frazier bay currently?  Usually around Father's Day we can catch them using slip bobbers and leeches/crawlers in shallower water in the evenings.  All we get are 11 inchers this year.  Any advice would be appreciated.

      I applied to be on the committee, denied.  I pretty much understand and agree with all comments in this post, however I would add the topic of slots.   1 - I believe the strategy behind the protective slot is a good thing for reproduction and growth of trophy sized fish. 2 - I believe there is a large natural imbalance of slot fish, size-wise, more of the slots than typical in nature. 3 - i believe this imbalance leads to depredation - large ones eating small ones.   The DNR and other "experts" claim walleye do not do this.  i have personally seen 10 inch eyes in the stomachs of 18s.  A 16 inch eye in a 30.  Not many of the fish in the slot and above are being cut open, so it is really tough to know exactly what is going on, but it sure is possible.   I do not have a recommendation on how to solve this.  Around 2000, fish over 19.5 were protected, allowing one over to be kept.  That would seem to help control the number of slots.  Again, I do not have a recommendation. Also, folks fishing multiple days, claiming a limit each day seems fishy, as it is nearly impossible to eat 4 fish each day.....  And if you claim have a fish meal the night before departing and you have a limit to travel with, you were over the limit.

      Fished Fri, Sat, and Sun with FIL, BIL, and the Mrs.  Fri was at large, deep basin reef.  Pulled up, anchored with a good bite.  Nothing fast and furious, but enough to keep us busy and interested.  Then the wind went flat.  Our bite went with it so we began pulling spinners, finding areas with biting fish.  The bugs were a moderate bother.  Ended with 8 larger eyes and 4 slot fish.   Sat was up to the south shore of the Angle.  Started off in 30' pulling spinners into 5', but never got past 27' as the bite was good.  Spent about a hour with this bite, then proceeded to join the 60 or so boats off Stoney.  We trolled through the village, picking up fish every 5 minutes or so.  Ended early at 2pm due to threatening skies that never produced and unbearable bugs.  Ended with another 8 eyes and 3 slot fish. Sun, needing suager, we fished in nearby reef that we heard had sauger.  Really no bugs to speak of due to the nice breeze.  Found our sauger, but more remarkable was the slot fish bite.  Ended just short of 20.  FIL was on fire.  He had nearly half of the boat's slots.  He went 28, 20, 25, 26.5, 27, 24, 27, and 24.  Here is the 28 with a smile.

      I agree with too many small fish, the issue is the deep water winter fishing.  This would result in more fish being wasted, as people would shove them under the ice rather than being fined.

      you are correct got a solid answer from champion on that; i do have an email sent out about the thermostat on those coleman ac units as they ahve a catolog selling them, just couldnt find out if it was compatible with our units

      PSU, If that’s the cause, that’s a serious problem! Has anyone seen evidence of spiny waterfleas this spring? RLG

      Yesterday was the first time I have noticed all of the dead smaller minnows floating around in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. Friend of mine who knows the lake as well as anyone indicated it may be perch minnows choking on spiny water fleas. If so, that's a bit disconcerting.....Can anyone confirm? Slow for me mid to late afternoon yesterday in the area fishing for walleyes..
