Humane Society Puts Pressure on South Carolina's Bear Baying
AUGUST 24, 2010
The training exercise called bear baying is intended to make the bears easier to shoot in the wild and it's only allowed in South Carolina. Armed with new undercover video of four such events, the Humane Society of the United States is pressuring state officials to explicitly outlaw the practice, which the organization says is effectively banned in every other state. Statutes banning animal fighting have a specific exemption for dog training.
