Gary, it looks like a moderator moved your thread, presumably for being a political attack.

I've asked for them to let you know more.

Gary, I'm a political guy. And yes it was politically charged. I know you wouldnt do it to cause problems. All of us know you well enough to understand that.

Guess I should have left out the political part. Maybe the bear is just an activest for free hand-outs.

Gary, the first part of your post was ok, except that the picture or link you refer to was missing. It was the last half that was over the line, along with mikemorrow's response - way too political in a somewhat offensive way and likely to lead to more over the line posts. Plus, given the context and wording of the last half, I suspect that the missing photo is a Photoshopped one I have seen that is definitely offensive by the rules of the website.

First part of Gary's post:

Montana Bear Tragedy...

This is a very sad story about a bear. Everybody should heed
the warnings not to feed wildlife because they become dependent
and don't forage for themselves any longer.  It is such a tragedy
to see what has been done to our country's wildlife!  The photo
below captures a disturbing trend that is beginning to affect
U.S. wildlife.

So now you know that I moderate. However, I try to keep that to an absolute minimum by just pointing out the possible problem to the owners and let them deal with it for the most part.
