To the editor:

So many people have felt the need to respond to the photo of that beautiful, magnificent bear hanging lifeless in The Berkshire Eagle's sport page. There are almost always two sides to everything.

When I saw the photo, I gasped. Poor strong, majestic yet so helpless beautiful creature. Slaughtered by those holding guns for which it had no answer. And soon, his thick coat will be spread on the floor and walked on.

His killers are proud. What an accomplishment! So many reasons given for "harvesting" bears.

Edna Dugas,
