Having just spent the last hour or so reading about the tragic events in the mighty Yellowstone Park, I can't help but to write a few words on my website.
I find the actions of the authorities that have taken the life of 'Blaze' a 20 year old Grizzly Mother [and her cubs], utterly appalling. While I agree it is a sad event that took place on August 7th, when a hiker lost his life to 'a bear', the taking of another life does not make it all okay. To imprison her cubs, to a life sentence behind bars is almost worse than the execution of their poor mother.
The hiker was at fault. Blaze was doing what Grizzly Bears do... protecting her cubs from a perceived threat.
We live in a very sad world as humans continue to destroy the earth and all of God's creatures.
PLEASE STOP THIS MADNESS AND LETS LEARN TO LIVE TOGETHER BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
