Johns: We make bear issue worse

I had the unfortunate experience of seeing the mama and her cubs being transported downvalley in two separate trucks. The mama sat alone in one truck, while the cubs were in another. I thought they were being re-located until I read the article.

I am saddened that this had to happen. I wish people would educate themselves and take measures, so this doesn’t happen.

My friend lives on the east side of town, where many of her neighbors short-term their homes. The renters are clueless and leave their trash out constantly.

Because of the ignorance of the landlords who do not educate the tenants, the bears will continue to get into trouble.
