Letter to the Editor: Stop feeding the bears

Really, people? It should be mandatory for people to have bear bins, to do the right thing for the wellbeing of the wildlife.

Whether it is bear proofing your home or using bear bins for your trash, it is time for people to take responsibility for their actions.

It is the laziness of some people and the lack of regard that has caused these beautiful animals to be killed. Stop it.

Those of you who donand#8217;t care about the wildlife need to be held accountable. It is a proven fact that many people have no regard for anything. Those are the same people who have no regard for the wellbeing of the wildlife.

Those people need to be turned in and made to pay for their disregard. Those people should be ashamed of what they have done, you ignorant, disrespectful, self-serving idiots.
