    This is really sad because not only did this elderly lady lose her own life because of her own actions but she caused the death of the 2 bears. In addition, over the years she fed many bears who will now be looking in other people’s back yards for dog food. These bears may become aggressive as the ones did with the officers in this case. They may injure other people and end up dead as well.

    Too many local governments are reluctant to enact or enforce anti-feeding ordinances. It is not just bears, but also animals like deer and coyotes whose habituation to humans for food leads to attacks and deaths of both humans and the animals as well. Until “harmless old ladies” like this one start getting fined, we can only wait for the next tragic story to unfold.
