Better solution

Posted: Thursday, July 12, 2007

We have noticed an increase in bear and moose kills this season. The latest was in the Daily News on June 30 about the "Biologist kills jogger-stalking Kincaid bear." It outrages us that a biologist would take such measures. As a biologist, I find Rick Sinnott has been a bit trigger happy. We all know that there are other humane methods to take care of the bear problem. But we question, was there really a bear problem? Don't we as humans like to observe bears ourselves?

Isn't it about time Rick Sinnott should be re-assigned to someplace else like maybe Unalaska island because he's so UN-Alaskan? Perhaps, with all the new progressive changes, with our governor, we could use a biologist who is more inclined to study the bears and wild animals and do something constructive rather than pull back the trigger of a loaded gun in order to make his job easier.

I wonder what he does with all the carcasses?
