Don’t Sensationalize Bear Behavior

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’ve beaten this dead horse about to death. While I am spending countless hours and writing countless articles attempting to properly educate people on black bear behavior, and other wild animal behavior, we then get letters to the editors showing how effective the brainwashing by environmentalist, animal worshipers has become.

What’s most amusing about the letter is that the author blames the state fish and game departments, along with the media, for spreading wrong information about bears.

This is groundless fearmongering, something the media uses instead of proper reporting. And, sadly, something that our wildlife agencies encourage.

We can agree on one thing; It’s the fault of fish and game and media, and they are not engaging in “proper” reporting, but for mostly complete opposite reasons.

Fear-mongering never works when attempting to educate people. The biggest obstacle is breaking down the years and years of brainwashing, and figuring out how to hack into the minds of people programmed to not think but only to follow authority……blindly……without question.

Beyond that insurmountable task, is then to properly teach people about animal behavior so that THINKING people can decide for themselves what risks they are willing to take.
