Earlier this fall a mountain goat was shot, gutted and the head and hide were taken to hang on the hunter’s wall. The concern is the incident occurred at a provincial campground in the Valhallas with people all around.
This was first publicized two weeks ago in the Valley Voice. In the November 30 issue of the Valley Voice, the BC government is soliciting public input to create a no hunting/no shooting area in the Mulvey watershed of Mulvey Park. The deadline for public comment is December 9, with only nine days notice and little public knowledge on this subject.
I am concerned about the government’s reasons for such a speedy agenda. This never happens in government policies. I wish that everyone who cares about wildlife in our provincial parks will hurry and write a short comment about safety and tourism issues. See Proposal #382: http://a100.gov.bc.ca/pub/ahte/hunting/create-no-huntingno-shooting-area-mulvey-watershed-valhalla-park. Thank you for your concern.
