Dear Ed,

re: Brusly bear

With the warmer weather, bear activity is picking up down here in the Deep South. I'm expecting to spot one any day now in my subdivision.

I am enclsoing the 2 items on the "Brusly" Bear, that I am sure you and the other BRBB members will find interesting.

We are enjoying the Columbia! magazine and all the news.

Your friend,

Kenny, BRBB Pro Bono, DSD

Thanks, Kenny Davis. The Bear Board is impressed with the seriousness with which Louisiana takes its bears. The news accounts have maps, wildlife personnel are armed with tranquilizer guns and cell phones. It is one class act. They do seem to need a better bear negotiating team, with the Brusly Bear. They are on a cyclic path, catching, sedating, releasing and then having to do it all over again.

The Blue Ribbon Bear Board is in desperate need of all manner of high tech bear equipment. Thus far, capital has been a problem. See if the Louisiana bear people will send us any surplus bear tranquilizer guns, especially to Breeding, where they are having the identical problem as Brusly. -Ed
