Letter — Don’t poison garbage men

Wild Animals or Lake Tahoe Wild Life Care.

“Let me see,” I think the wild animals are very important in the ego system. But killing those three bears was very wrong. Anyone who feeds these animals for pleasure deserves to get the house ripped up and then they should be punished. Feeding wild animals and luring them into your home should be a serious crime. If a homeless person breaks into a home and raids the refrigerator, or someone whom got lost in the woods and needs food to stay alive is a crime. So when you invite, or lure animals into the residential area you are also setting a trap for the animal to be killed.

These wild animals are safer, healthier, and live better lives when they are left in the wild. Get a container to put your trash in. A Jay Box works really well. Also when people put bleach and ammonia in there trash you are causing serious health problems to the men and women who pick up your trash. These people are being poisoned every day. If humans stop the poisoning, and stop the animals from scattering your trash you would be protecting the land, environment, people, and animals. Most of all for those of you who think feeding these animals is cute you are just plain ignorant. Stop feeding these animals, you can enjoy them in a natural way if you just be patient. All those squirrel feeders and bird feeders also lure and invite bears and other animals into your domain. “It’s not a good thing.”
