Letter to the Editor: Feed the bears

For years government bureaucrats (State biologists, etc.) have told us NOT to feed the bears. This is idiotic — because it is the hungry bears that break into our cars and smash down our garage doors. There is ample food in Incline Village to feed the bears, and well-fed bruins are docile and loving animals. Hungry bears may be dangerous!

Don’t you see — that if we fed the bears, more bears would come — and Incline Village would be the “BEAR-HAVEN OF THE WORLD”! Then tens of thousand of people from all over the world would come to interact with and feed the bears. This would bring millions of dollars into the economy of Incline Village — and could perhaps be a year-around industry greater than our ski resorts.

We are missing a big bet — by not feeding our bears.

Friend of the bears,

Jerry Stewart
