On Sunday’s 60 Minutes, the last story of the hour was about the conflict between humans and grizzlies outside Yellowstone. It does sound like the bear population may be too much for the physical space and needs to be monitored and managed. I don’t believe in the idea of turning over management to the state because there are too many cowboys (literally and figuratively) itching to kill some grizzly. To avoid that, the federal government needs to do a better job.
What bothers me, however, is the woman who moved to the area from California with her children so they could be closer to nature — then whines about the danger to her children the grizzlies posed, etc., etc. Well, yes — getting close to nature can be risky. If you don’t really want to be that close to nature, I suggest you move to a place like, say, Chicago. Of course, someone like you would find something here to whine about, too, something expectable like, say, traffic.
She decided to move to suburban Cody. Please, do us all a favor and stay there.
