Grizzly bear sow was killed illegally by WGFD

The contacts for concerned citizens. Of course citizens of Park County have the most weight, but these guys are all public servants.
There is a link on the DCI website https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfuqshQteYsWouQnnN0PdJ24fnUZ960VISHwELisvGp_kZnog/viewform Steve “Woody” Woodson, Director to report concern about criminal activity.
  I do not find an email address today. In putting the pressure on concerned citizens can click that link and report concern that a grizzly bear sow was killed illegally by WGFD because she was shot in alleged self-defense without first deploying or using bear spray.
  This is contrary to WGFD bear wise policy and the incident must be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted because it is not self-defense to shoot first when a non-lethal diversion can be and was not employed and in particular by WGFD who is responsible now to conservatively manage this species, not kill sows with cubs, so necessary for this species to survive.
  You can point out he actually killed 4 grizzly if the cubs are not saved and that is at a restitution cost by statute of $100,000.00  This is the message to each of these agencies, by email or phone, you require a thorough investigation, forensically complete, including distance measurements, photos, witness statements, necropsy, which would include distance of shooter from bear killed aka ballistics,  all of which shall eventually be public record.

This is not an automatic self-defense it never is and bear spray is mandatory for that plea to be legally employed by WGFD.

  1. I do NOT want to dillute the issue of protecting the Wolf here on this site;
    but wolves throughout the west can only return in relative safety is other wildlife is protected as well, safe travel for wildlife is restored – this is called habitat connectivity, and EVERY government agency is successfully repurposed to function as a protector of native wildlife and home.

    Those of you in California know of thhe TUle Elk, the smallest of the elk, who once lived by the hundreds of thousands to millions in the coastal valleys, the oak foothills and savanna (there’s a tiny remnant herd over in Lake County, by where the big fires recently swept through), and the once huge seasonal wetland of thhe Central Valley.
    Now, moost of tat has been paved over and cut up and turned into houses, industry,, cities – even te problem rice fields and tree agriculture, which excluded the elk and othher wildlife, has been paved much. THe wino-ries have slowly increased like a cancer, eating into the oaklands and savanna and water streams that once held those millions of elk, big bears as far as Ventura County, and of course, the wolves, that were also Spanish targets as tey brought cattle and ag, enslaving the indians.
    Wherever an indigenous tribe had a word for wolf, you may expect that the wolf was there, properly managing the Tule Elk, before the guns and the goldseekers and tree eaters came.

    I have spent a lot of tracking time trying to discover all three elk species presence and movements, as well as deer.
    Wolf advocates need to both sweep cattle off the public lands and promote unrestricted return of all the elk.
    Here is a grave abdication by the US National Park Service, of their duty to protect wildlife, this one in Point Reyes.

    THere, the last reasonable size elk herd (outside of the artificially planted one in Owens Valley – which could help the wolf’s return to the Sierra/Inyos, but it is closely shot – managed) is being squeezed into an ever-smaller corral by the NPS’s unethical and antimission statement reduction of teir habitat to increase cattle grazing on the Point Reyes Natinoal Seashore.
    Here’s an overview
