Leave the bears be

Dear Editor:

The bears are desperate – be safe, be smart, and stop calling the police. Too many bears have been euthanized. (My heart does break for the family who lost their doggy.)

For every nuisance bear put down, euthanize 20 people who are nuisances. (I might be one!)

Since people seem to want to live high up on the mountains, invading bear territory, why don’t we all move up there and let the bears live in town?
