To the editor:

Seriously? Another bear relocated to the Mormon Creek drainage? 

That has to be the fourth or fifth one this summer. Just because you (G&F) have a facility up there less than a mile from the summer homes on Mormon Creek and is easily accessible by a truck pulling a bear trap? What gives you people the right to do that? 

If I was a cabin owner on Mormon Creek (of which I used to be) I would file a lawsuit. This is madness. The odds of a close encounter have just gone up exponentially. I’m certainly glad I don’t own a summer home up there.

One solution is bear spray, the type that was mentioned the other day by Bob in his article about the montana hunters, the type made of lead and sprays one at a time. Nothing else works as well.
