Practicing ahimsa in a country setting
A buddy and I had dinner last night. You may have watched a viral video circulating of an adorable black bear in CO. (I believe), pushing a dumpster on it's hind legs away from the trash area from a back space. I'm sure it had a wonderful feast
My buddy, an avid hunter, said the bear should be killed. That it is, in effect, a danger to the area as it now is tamed to human establishments. "It probably wouldn't think twice to kill," he said.
I am no hunter. I live in a major city. But I do my best to practice ahimsa. What are your thoughts on practicing ahimsa in the face of, let us posit, a bear approaching your child or exhibiting dangerous behavior?
