Fitness fanatic Josh Bowmar said he was maintaining a spear-hunting “heritage” and he cared more than anyone for the welfare of his prey.
Video showing him glorying in the slaughter of a black bear was pictured out and about with his wife today as he revealed he eats his kill.

He also said the meat tastes “amazing” and is “extremely nutritious”.
Bowmar fitted a GoPro camera to his 7ft home-made weapon and speared the bear that had been lured into sight with a barrel full of bait. He also spoke with Mirror, defending spear hunting:
“No one cares more about these animals than us hunters, especially me. If I just wanted to kill, why not use a rifle and shoot from 500 yards with it having no chance to escape? If I didn’t care about humane killing, why spend years becoming extremely proficient with a spear to make sure I could harvest this bear ethically?”
But animal welfare campaigner Masha Kalinina of Humane Society International said: “No one could argue there is any skill involved here, no exhibition of hunting prowess. This has nothing to do with conservation as trophy hunters often argue. This is pure selfish blood lust, a desire for a thrill and a trophy at the expense of an innocent life.”
