A `bear' of a dilemma

The Habitat page article "Park Faces People-Bear Dilemma," Nov. 10, illustrates how tourists place themselves above and superior to nature. Glacier National Park is one of the most beautiful parks that I have ever been to because it has not been domesticated.

Grizzlies have rights to live. I completely disagree with the response that Chris Servheen of the United States Fish & Wildlife Service made regarding the aggressive nature of grizzlies. He said that he "doesn't tolerate those types of aggressive bears." If tourists feel that their lives are in danger at Glacier and other parks, then don't go. S. B. C., Tacoma, Wash.
