LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Bears, other wildlife

Bears and other wildlife play a significant part in Lake Tahoe’s economy, as well as the state of Nevada as a whole.

Keep in mind, that not everyone likes to gamble or leave there money at the casinos.

Many visitors come to Nevada to see remnant’s of the old west, and wish to see bears, wild horses and burros interact in their natural habitat.

But, if the Department of Wildlife, the Department of Interior, the Bureau of Land Management, the Department of Agriculture and other government agencies have it their way Nevada’s bears, wild horses and burros will be killed and slaughtered and eventually will be just another animal or species placed on the endangered, or extinction list and eventually forgotten.

No sir folks, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.

The vote to hunt the bears, as well as the round up of the wild horses and burros is all about power, money and greed, all at the taxpayers expense.

I suggest that we get smart, get off our duffs, and give our support to Christine Schwamberger and Kathryn Bricker of nobearhuntnv.org and join together to help Ann Bryant of the Bear League and not to forget Tom and Cheryl from Lake Tahoe Wildlife Rescue.

So my friends, take this as a call to arms. Do whatever it takes to save the wildlife for us and future generations to come.
