Who benefits from bears?

Published: Sunday, Jul. 20, 2014 - 1:07 pm

Re "The return of the grizzly" (Forum, July 13): I read the article with interest then asked myself, "Who benefits from this?" This is a competitive predator that will not remain in select areas, no matter what the experts say. We have had puma attacks in the Sacramento area. Wild animals don't respect the rules. Their numbers increase with proper range and prey, but at some juncture their numbers dictate that they move further out.

The Grizzly is a marvelous animal, but we need more open discussion about where, and how many to release.
