An Interaction Takes Two? Intelligence Not Required

The Bangor Daily News(BDN) editorial staff has gone above and beyond the call of duty to exemplify their ignorance on the subject of bears. There’s a saying that’s been around for some time and has changed a bit over the decades but essentially it says that it is better to make people wonder about how stupid you are by keeping your mouth shut, than speaking and removing all doubt.

The BDN editors decided to take a stab at removing all doubt by stating that staff at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) aren’t bright enough to understand in an equation involving bears and humans, the density of the human population factors into that equation. Hurray for the BDN to point out the obvious.

What causes bears to conflict with humans isn’t just how many bears and how many humans are on what sized land mass. But does the BDN know that or do they even care? Doubtful!

The issue of bear behavior, especially in human-settled landscapes is complex and changes rapidly. Editors at the BDN and radical perverts at the Humane Society of the United States have no business attempting to manage our wildlife and game species from their offices in both Bangor and Washington, D.C.

People have been spoon-fed utter nonsense since the day they were born and now they believe it all to be truth. No more than Chandler Woodcock ought to tell the editors at BDN how to layout their newspaper and sell copies, BDN shouldn’t be protecting an animal species they have zero knowledge about and clearly show that they don’t.

This is why Maine residents should vote to let the MDIFW professionals take care of the bears, BDN can continue to print their newspapers and the Humane Society of the United States can continue to fraud the people and steal their money. Or, they could do what others do that are clueless: Go play golf.
