Don't blame the liberals

Re "Like grizzlies? Live with them" (Letters, June 24): John West seems to have fallen into lock-step with other liberal/environmentalist haters, when he suggests that grizzly bears and environmentalists should be relocated to the Sierras.

I am a liberal and an environmentalist, and I'm not sure that re-integrating grizzlies back into the Sierras is a good idea either. As a long time backpacker, the brown bears keep us busy enough as it is. Plus, with rural sprawl creeping its way up into the mountains, the bears' environment is getting smaller and smaller.

West should be careful about making blanket judgments. They don't always apply.
