Re "The return of the grizzly" (Forum, July 13): Thank you for the thoughtful article about the possibility of reintroducing the grizzly to California. It is long overdue for this to return to our state. I believe that man and grizzly can live alongside each other if man remains respectful of the power of the grizzly.

I watched the reintroduction of the wolf into Yellowstone with much interest and continue to track the life of 0R7 as he begins a life in California and Oregon. Having the grizzly back in the chain of animal life will enhance the wild lands of California and its absence has left a hole in that chain.

It will take a thoughtful public education campaign but there is hope here. I look forward to the time when the brown bear will once again roam our state.
