ANOTHER GRIZZLY MOM KILLED; YEARLING CUBS WILL GO TO LIVING DEATH IN ZOO.

HOME

MONTANA:  “Problem grizzly killed” reads the headline (article here). NO–the bear was not the problem; it was unaccommodating humans and a state that fails to protect bears with laws. For TWO YEARS these bears have been lured beyond the edge of their habitat by attractants: “…chickens, ducks and rabbits…pet and livestock food…” At least this time the word “kill” is used instead of “euthanize”–I’d go even further and say this bear was *executed* for the crimes of humans who refused to act in a way that kept their wild neighbors safe. Hefty fines would force rural homeowners to eliminate bear attractants; electric fencing is proven to save bears. Montana is not adequately protecting bears from human nuisances.

  1. Saving them is getting to seem hopeless. Whether it’s grizzly bears in America or gorillas in Rwanda (or American zoos), the animals are increasing victims of human overpopulation, stupidity, and greed. And, yes, we’re the pests and trash animals.

    No matter how the animals are lured, attracted, or harassed, wildlife, park, and zoo officials will assure the public that only human lives are important and then prove it with bullets and bolt guns.

    It’s a perpetual vigil for those who care about the bear and the rest of creation. Requiescat in pace.

    • I have been in contact, left messages, inserted comments to their site, tried to call their office at FWP Montana Regeion 1 to let them know that there is a sanctuary in Texas keeping an eye on this case that is equipped to handle grizzly coys called #International Exotic Animal Sanctuary and it waiting to be contacted by Montana. I have left Montana FWP Region 1 all the information they need to contact this sanctuary and make arrangements with them to take the coys but they are hell bent on putting them in a zoo or euthanizing them. We need to all leave messages to FWP about the sanctuary so these coy don’t grow up behind bars Once again the information for the sanctuary is…International Exotic Animal Sanctuary News

    • Why did they do this? The bear didn’t kill anyone. Imagine the horror of those poor cubs having their entire lives turned upside down because someone was too fricken lazy to protect their own livestock!!!! I can’t wait to see what happens with this so-called tri-state hunting proposal –

      • Right! They don’t guard their livestock from anything, from blizzards to sickness and injury. But the thought of a wolf or a bear seems to bring out all their protective instincts.
