Re "The return of the grizzly" (Forum, July 13): Grizzlies are not cute, cuddly bears. They are super-predators, the size of a Clydesdale. The Spanish identified them as the biggest danger. The Americans concurred. It took 100 years of concerted effort to rid us of these 1-ton monsters.

To paraphrase Karl Marx, history repeats. The first time is a tragedy, the second a comedy. This grizzly re-introduction idea is a bad joke.
