Saw this recently in Hancock County, Maine.

The plethora of bear stickers are in response to a referendum that would outlaw 93% of bear hunting in Maine. (

As someone who has had a bear destroy property in my backyard very close to my house, I am of the opinion that an overpopulation of hungry bears would be a bad thing.

The license plate refers to a national group (Humane Society of the United States) that has been bankrolling a “local” front group and funding the “yes” side. If this passes it will likely be due to urban voters who will never have to deal with the real-life consequences of that vote.

My favorite one on there though is “I didn’t claw my way to the top of the food chain to eat vegetables”. 😀


Here’s the top portion of the rear hatch:

Bumper Stickers - Maine - Bears

By the way, the Bear referendum failed.

This driver is just following Ronald Reagan’s advice, be as strong as the bear, if there is a bear.
