Would you ask them for passports?

24 January 2007

Without our casual border crossers, life would be un-bear-able down here in the Big Bend–

Bears are moving back and forth across the border and have been doing this for many years. In some regards the population in Coahuila can be considered the core, with satellite populations in West Texas and adjoining ranges in Coahuila and neighboring states. However, whether these populations can establish themselves and grow will depend largely on people being able to coexist with black bears.

    Black bears have also been spotted in Zapata and Webb counties. There base is the Sierra Madre about 70 miles south. One bear was shot in Zapata (hunter was fined, widely publicized in S. Texas – good for bears). Hopefully they are making a comeback border-wide.

    Hey… there’s a thought, el! Replace the National Guard with bears… SUPPORT YOUR RIGHT TO ARM BEARS! 🙂
