Hungry Grizzly Bears in Yellowstone Likely to Cause Increased Human/Bear Encounters

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is a common natural phenomenon that food for wild animals comes in cycles. Ever since I can remember, mast crops, such as wild nuts and berries come in various amounts depending on several things that effect growth.

According to a report by Thomson Reuters Foundation, due to a minimal crop of available foods for grizzly and black bears, Yellowstone Park authorities are warning visitors that bears will be hungry and looking for food. Because of this natural shortage bears are bound to encounter human beings, partly because the humans are a food source….directly or indirectly.

The author of the article has regurgitated the overused excuse, or coveryourass du jour, that the lack of nuts is caused by climate change…..without offering any definition. Invoking “climate change” is kind of like Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, i.e when you can’t or don’t want to find the truth, simply blame it on climate change.

I remember seeing a poster in the coach’s office in high school when I played football. It read something like this”

Rule #1 The coach is always right.
Rule #2 Refer to Rule #1

This may now be rewritten to read”

Rule #1 Climate change is to blame for everything.
Rule #2 See Rule #1.
