I recently read a short Letter to the Editor from the Western AG Reporter (the letter was scanned from a newsprint and emailed to me.) The letter writer pointed out that the fish and wildlife department was fining a man hundreds of dollars for “harassing” wildlife. It seems that a bear was attacking his livestock, so he was using his pick-up truck to chase the bear away. The letter writer wanted to know if the livestock belonged to this man and they were on his property, then why isn’t the fish and wildlife department being fined for THEIR wildlife harassing his cows?
The solution is clear. Simply shoot the damned bear!
I’ve always said the Environmentalists always take and never give. They take life from people for their idiotic purposes. In this case, the man would have been better off to just shoot the damned bear. Give the environmentalists exactly what they are asking for.
Mind you, of course, that authorities, who collectively lack enough brains to know to get in out of the rain, along with their buddies at the environMENTAL institutes, teach that “hazing” is a good tool to use to keep large predators from attacking livestock and humans – a means of cohabiting with wild animals. I think a truck is a great tool to use to “haze” a bear.
Get a life!
