Reasonable Bear Safety Plans Under Scrutiny
3rd ‘Born Bad’ Bear From Same Litter Euthanized At Lake Tahoe Highlights Biology Debate « CBS San Francisco
Last week, Nevada wildlife officials were forced to euthanize a young problem bear at the lake the third offspring killed from the same litter born to the mama bear known by her tag number, Green 108. Shes just kind of a chronic, nuisance-type bear, said Carl Lackey, a wildlife biologist for the Nevada Department of Wildlife. Shes always been getting into trash, always been in the same area. Weve captured several litters of hers. Weve captured her several times. Lackey co-authored a 2008 study published in the Journal of Mammalogy about the role of genetics in bear conflict behavior. We sort of concluded that genetics alone could not explain a nuisance behavior in black bears, Lackey said about the research led by S.W. Breck and C.L. Williams at the USDAs National Wildlife Research Center in Fort Collins, Colorado. A study led by National Park Service researchers first suggested in 1989 that problems with Yellowstones grizzly bears were a function of behavior passed from mother to offspring and successive generations, but it didnt determine whether it was learned or inherited.

Schools have had to be placed on lock down. People have to be safe. Killing all the bears like we did those terrible bison when they got in the way of the railroads seems unlikely. A plan like that would cost a lot more than it would reap. But there is a better plan. A plan that would actually be profitable and create safe zones around all the neighborhoods and homes where people who want to live far away from the crowded cities can live without the fear of bear cubs impacting their remote home sites. We have to harvest all the trees. We have to clear away all of the potential habitat of the bears. No trees no bears.
