Letter to the Editor: Call it what it is

To the editor:

In a recent article on killing black bears, the writing talked about "harvesting" them. This made it sound like they were a crop like wheat or cherries. Since they are not a crop and "harvesting"them requires killing them, why not be straight up and call it killing.

Hunting bears is not against the law, so why not call it what it is.
