He says he wanted a pet. So a Quebec woodsman last week snatched a black bear cub from the Gatineau River — repeatedly running over it with his Jet Ski, its mother snarling from shore. Police later ordered Denis Ryan to release the orphan, but it has little chance of surviving in the wild. And Ryan has no chance of being charged with animal cruelty. Why?

This story has been filtering around the hunting and outdoors websites. I get angrier every time I read it.

How can this guy not be locked up?!?!? It's absolutely stunning. What the hell is the matter with quebec law that they can't arrest this guy - he'd be in the pokey or at least facing a fine so large he'd need a 2nd mortgage here in bc!

I can't believe no one there didn't stop him. What an absolute class A jerk! The man has no business being in public. And he calls himself a woodsman. Blockhead is more like it.

Well, isn't there something about unlawfully obtaining an animal without a health certificate or some obscure technicality they can nail the guy on?

Apperently theres a gap in quebec law. the guy would have been facing serious charges here in bc. IF he survived long enough to get out of the woods once the people on the beach saw what he was doing. And a bear cub at that - there's about 2 or 3 additional laws broken on top of the 'no harrassing wildlife' law and 'no transporting or confinging wildlife' law. Even mothers with cubs enjoy special protection, never mind the cubs. And i sure wouldn't want to be a hiker who runs into mom for the next year or so.

The man is beyond contempt, and still shows no remorse for his actions. He should be in jail.
