    Go for it Mack! These kinds of problems need to be cleaned up in National Parks but also in areas where bears frequent the area so that there are not the problems associated with the bears that are being fed. Like most wildlife issues it is a people problem less than a wildlife problem.

    Poor bears are just taking a beating this year. Is this because of a rise in population or anything?
