There's some humane reasons for it. You can identify if the bear is a mother with cubs or not and can get a cleaner, less painful kill.

That said, there's much less sport in bear bating, and it greatly increases the chances of a bear dying anyways (as opposed to being eluded and going home empty handed, which is often the case).

I'm not in a favour of hunting, but I enjoy my steaks enough to know I'd be a colossal hypocrite for criticizing anyone for it.
