Erwin Wilde: Managing by killing

March 2, 2014 

Regarding the Jan. 22 Point of View piece “Why baiting bears is simply slaughter”: What is wrong with these folks? Baiting black bears and then shooting them is absolutely like a canned hunt or winning the lottery to kill a black rhino.

Black bears do not kill people. I am 77 years old and am very concerned with commissioners who want to “manage” wildlife by killing it. Please reconsider.
