Officials are now concerned that across Colorado too many wild bears have developed a tasted for human food and are getting used to people. They are now actively telling residents to be, literally, mean to the bears. Yell at them, throw rocks and if they charge you, stand up to them.
"You want to be as big, as large as possible, and you always want to fight back with a black bear," said Hampton. Black bears tend to be timid and are generally not aggressive.
"When they are utilizing our environment as their habitat in that manner, they are also very likely to defend that territory, " said Hampton. "And so it can be a dangerous situation when bears get to the point where they are breaking into homes to get food."
Note how it's viewed - these stupid bears think they can use "our" environment as "their" habitat. What the heck?!? And can you imagine anyone being encouraged to throw a rock at a polar bear? It seems to me that the World Wildlife Federation needs to get the same Hollywood stars who film the polar bear commercials to say that they and their friends are boycotting Aspen to save the black bears. After all, the story reports that authorities so far have murdered 11 of these poor creatures in Aspen so far this summer. All they are doing is looking for food since we -- I mean these rich lefites -- have ruined the bears' environment. Shouldn't the Animal Liberation Front be blowing up ski resorts where these limousine liberals hang out?
