OK three dead bears were a sorry sight, sorry that I not only love bears, but the thought of three at once, is just sad. I have the intuitive thought of baiting...but only the hunters know. Catch the info on black bears on Nat Geo you would never kill one. The "wildlife" program out at the Power Authority (Massena) over the weekend. Had I known there would be a 5 month old puma or some type of wild cat, stressed out pacing back and forth in a 2' cage, I never would have went. The cat was obviously stressed, it's a baby, but since it's on display, it had to be seen to pay it's way. Exploitation of animals is a mortal sin.
