My heart goes out for the hiker (ranger?) ‘Lance Crosby’ who was killed by a bear in the middle of a forest.
And my heart goes out for the female grizzly who was killed by men in the middle of a civilized, most advanced, world’s best, noble democracy called the USA.
This is ridiculous, stupid and plain bull shit, YELLOWSTONE.. YOU CAN”T KILL THE BEAR..
1. Why kill?
Their official response:
We have limited options for relocating bears. Relocation can shift a management issue from one area to another, and there is nowhere to relocate a bear that it won’t eventually encounter people. Bears also have a strong fidelity to their home range and will usually return to it. Adult bears typically don’t do well in zoos or similar facilities because of the drastic change in lifestyle and habitat.
Thats not a reason enough to kill the grizzly. So killing her is convenient for you, less of a hassle and management, least of the cost? If this bear tasted human blood and may kill more, then you can send her too to the zoo as well as her cubs.
2. Did you give her a fair trial?
Did you see if the hiker provoked her intentionally or accidentally? What did the bear say when we asked her why she killed the man? How would the hiker be penalized for hiking alone and without carrying the bear spray/repellents? <disbelief>Ah! and was he a ranger himself? </disbelief> Did you take the witness of the cubs into the proceedings? Did we kill EVERY murderer who has ever killed another man? Same argument sounds so reasonable, no?
3. How many more will you kill?
When the human race is invading into the animals’ territories everywhere, how many more of them will you kill? And just because you could capture her? Because its convenient for you? Who framed this law? Why aren’t anyone talking against it? And what is the difference between a bear killing man, and a man killing bear? oh God! Where do we stand as a civilization?
4. F*u*c*k you. I ban this national park.
Yellowstone spokeswoman Julena Campbell said the cubs, if captured, would be killed or adopted by a zoo or rehabilitation center.
wow! great… I pity the cubs. I had many plans to visit this beautiful national park but I am cancelling all, until you get rid of this stupid law. I may just be one visitor for you, but yes I will not visit this foolishly beautiful place. I didn’t observe till today that your name resounds #stone #age
I Pledge. And I would pray for the man who was killed by the bear.. and the bear who was killed by the man.
5. Counter arguments/philosophies:
- If a man intentionally jumps into a bear ring in a zoo and gets killed, will you kill that bear too? because you should, with the reasons you have given above.
- Did you ask the family members of Lance Crosby if they would give mercy to the mother bear?
- When was this law framed? What was the basis and the input data? How relevant is it today? Do we have similar laws in all other national parks? For all other animals? huh! I see bear on the flag of California after all and we kill them officially.
- What could you have done if a group of bears ate him? Kill them all, A**oles?
- Did you submit an alternative theory? Did the Judiciary oversaw the euthanization? What if he was killed in a fight, assault, mistaken animal behaviour or by other means and the bear only just ate him? How do we know if some other man didn’t intentionally kill him and put him with the bear?
