In New Jersey, a bear attacked and killed a Rutgers University student and evidently it’s got people in Connecticut running scared out of fear it could happen to them. (Must I remind people to “look big?”) And then afterward blame it on global warming.
After reading this article at NewsTimes.com, by the standards and logic used by those who would prefer to marry a bear than kill it, this wildlife biologist should be fired for stating such nonsense.
“The habitat is not shrinking, it’s expanding,” said Paul Rego, a wildlife biologist with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
“I receive calls every day from people concerned about bears in their yards and pets attacked,” Rego said.
“As the population expands, it will include more developed parts of the state, and the probability of injuries increases as the frequency of contact increases.”(emboldening added)
Who ever heard of such a thing as expanding habitat? Such talk does nothing to promote the agendas of the predator lovers, those whose ideas about animals tip the scales to the point of perverted animal worship and preference of them over humans and human safety.
Using their logic, perhaps all that habitat should be destroyed in order to prevent the bears from being killed because they are a nuisance and a public safety concern.
