Today is Earth Day-Dear California Fish and Wildlfe: Give wildlife a chance!!

We can find no record of a black bear killing
humans. Unfortunately this isn't true of sick
humans,  who booze it up and shoot poor wild bears
and other creatures for FUN!!
  April 22, 2016 is Earth Day.  We need to try and get along with the wild creatures of our earth, instead of trying to destroy them all. It should be a natural instinct, but some are terrified of anything wild.

   Calaveras County Supervisors appoint wild animal killers to their Fish and Game Commission and hire paid assassins to kill as much of our wildlife as they can. If they don't live, humans will also die!! We share this earth!!
