Fire affects animals, too

Posted: Monday, July 02, 2007

I have been reading recently about more bear activity in the lower peninsula, and as a life-long Alaska resident would like to see people take their surroundings into consideration when it comes to wildlife.

Yes, the wildlife was there first and we are only to respect them. But look at their environment at this time, a large part of where the bear, moose and other wildlife live has been threatened by wildfire. Where do you think these animals are going to go? In our backyards, driveways and anyplace that a threat is not, especially around 2 to 5 a.m.

Their habits remain the same. They are just temporarily without a home, also. Use your head and think. When these things happen, it affects more than just the human population.
