LETTER: Another innocent bear bites the dust

From reader Mark Joyce

Re: Bear euthanized after downtown Nelson encounter, Sept. 16

Because of people’s careless attitude towards wildlife another bear loses its life on the streets of Nelson. Why wasn’t this latest bear re-located far into the forest? I bet it’s cheaper to use a bullet than to re-locate. So please for the sake of these magnificent animals please, please remove all fruit from trees and keep garbage safely away. Bears and other wildlife will benefit from these simple but effective steps.
