Get ready for bear attacks
The Modesto Bee had a nice article on mountain lions, “Big cat reports raising concern” (Page A1, Sept. 12.) Get used to these lion attacks. The animal lovers stopped the hunting of these lions. Which, like other dangerous game, need to be controlled (harvested).
So what do you expect?
The next problem will be bears. Since outlawing the use of dogs (which by the way is the only real way to hunt bears). Any hunter will tell you the only way to see a bear to hunt is just plain dumb luck.
I predict bear problems will be common in the next 5-10 years in low lying areas like Knights Ferry and La Grange. Like the cougar, once they get a taste of easy prey like domestic dogs and cats, and yes, humans, look out.
This is what happens when people think they know what is best based on emotions, rather that the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Any wildlife is not a pet. These are dangerous animals.
But as a lot of other problems with California, we have the patients running the insane asylums.
