Are the bear cubs that were orphaned at the end of September when their mother was struck and killed by a vehicle, dead? Mammoth’s Wildlife Specialist Steve Searles believes so. The following letter is a reaction from a Mono County resident upon hearing Searles’ opinion:
Way to go DFG
Way to go, Department of Fish and Game, way to go!
Hearing today that the 2 bear cubs left to fend for themselves after their mother was killed by a car had (possibly) died, I was so angered by the inept actions taken by DFG! It’s obvious to me the “bear biologists” were VERY WRONG in their assessment of the bear cubs “from a distance.” With all the “professional” opinions regarding the cubs being so conflicted, how about someone from DFG using a brain cell and some honest compassion towards the “baby” bear cubs?!
If a three year old child was lost somewhere in Mammoth, is that child capable of living without assistance?! OF COURSE NOT!!! A baby anything needs nurturing and it’s mother, period!
Another tragic DFG mistake!! Maybe it’s time for this government entity to be held accountable for their mistake …WHAT DO YOU THINK???
