Smith: A barbaric act

It is with great alarm and sadness that I read of the killing of the family of bears, back in my beloved Aspen. How in the world could this happen?

A barbaric act in a town that used to be known and proud of its connection to the wild. Either there are too many ignorant people at large, or the curtailment of the outsiders (whether they be stupid folk from out-of-town or ill-informed “enforcement”) has gone haywire. Seriously!
