I would like Hans Ruck to know that I share his concerns about what is happening to the bears in and around Tumbler Ridge.
Like yourself, my wife and I bought a home here in this pretty little town to retire in. No one asked or forced us to buy here, we did so because we liked what we saw, bears and all!
I don?t know how or why we wound up with a so called bear expert, to come in and start killing the bears, but I know they call this area the Grizzly Valley. I think that would give anyone moving here a clue as what to expect. We moved into their territory not vice versa.
As for mountain lion?s, I haven?t seen anything like that since I quit drinking about fifteen years ago. So if you see one consider yourself either blessed, or quit drinking!
