Killing of bear was dangerous to those travelling behind

Opinion

To the Editor:

Sometime on the evening of Thursday, May 23, less than 1 km east of the Elmfield Road on Route 256, a large black bear was struck and killed by a large vehicle travelling west at a high rate of speed.

To the person or persons responsible for this act I have two questions: Why did you leave it blocking a good portion of the west bound lane? And why were you travelling at such a high rate of speed?

This not only endangered the lives of those travelling behind you but was also a huge disrespect to the beauty and fullness of this being. It deserved better.
