Letter: Please, please secure garbage, save bears

I am probably preaching to the choir, but please, if you have an outside garbage pail (and who doesn’t?), please, please secure it so bears won’t be killed.

I witnessed a bear in a cage recently in the 700 block of Blake Avenue. It had been rummaging through the garbage in the alley, and because it had already had two strikes against it, it was being taken away to be euthanized.

Bears are hungry now. Please don’t contribute to their deaths by leaving your garbage unsecured. I am still sad and angry by what I witnessed, and it didn’t have to happen.
