On behalf of the bears: Thank you!

Santa Margarita



People power has won out! State Fish and Game has put off bear hunting in SLO County indefinitely. Thank you, New Times, for bringing this to our attention in November 2007, and keeping us informed through the last three years. Thank you also, to the three county supervisors who wrote letters to the Commission against having bear hunting in our county. Thank you to Jeff Kuyper and everyone who e-mailed or wrote letters to the Fish and Game Commission against it. It would be nice if many of those people e-mailed or wrote to thank the Fish and Game Commission for coming to this conclusion!

Maybe there is a way the county Board of Supervisors could make or write a law that all of San Luis Obispo County be made a sanctuary for black bears forever in the future! There are  plenty of areas already where bear hunting has been legal for years. Leave our bears alone!
