George Skelton's shocking screed suggesting bears should be hunted down and killed because "they grow out of control" is a perfect example of why so many animal rights groups have come into being.
"We can't use our condo's heavy-duty, latched garbage cans anymore. The bears have mastered it. Trash has to be toted 100 yards to a dumpster." Oh, excuse me. The majestic creatures that have historically occupied mountainous territory have become a nuisance?
Hunt and kill: That seems to be Skelton's solution. Frankly, I find his views repugnant.
Hunting is the "sport" of cowards, and using dogs is even worse. Hounding is out of step with Californians' values, and Gov. Jerry Brown should sign SB 1221 to ban this practice.
