Former NHL Player Receives Death Threats After Legally Hunting A Grizzly Bear

Former professional hockey player Tim Brent, who played for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Carolina Hurricanes, has received death threats after legally harvesting a grizzly bear, The Resurgent reported.

Brent, who's married to well-known hunter Eva Shockey, posted a picture of his harvest on social media. It wasn't long before anti-hunters chimed in and ridiculed him for his actions:

Brent harvested the grizzly and a moose with his father-in-law in the Yukon. People, however, were more upset by the pictures of the grizzly than they were the moose. 

Here are just a few of the responses Brent received:

It must have never occurred to this guy that people hunt grizzly bears for the meat, not the selfies.

Again, they're upset about the picture, huh?

Brent responded to anti-hunters with one image that prove exactly why people in this country continue to hunt:

The hunting of grizzly bears has been controversial recently. Multiple states were set to open a legal grizzly bear season on September 1st for the first time in decades but a judge ordered a temporary injunction.

The grizzly bear was declassified in summer 2017.
