I would like to show my support for Pat Costello and his fight to save the spirit bear from becoming someone's trophy merely for its unique colored hide.
Sighting a 'spirit' bear
I read the article (Empire, Aug. 19) where Fish and Game said they would not protect this bear because they lack the manpower. How hard would it be to make it illegal to shoot this bear? It's illegal to kill a bear outside of bear hunting season. How do they patrol that? This spirit bear is a special bear and it deserves to be saved. Please help support Pat and his crusade to save the spirit bear.
