Beaver Creek’s bear debacle

Julie Hanan, Tampa, Fla.

With all the money Beaver Creek must pay for public relations, how in the world are they sticking by their attitude that their trash cans are legal and compliant at the expense of our wildlife? What a PR debacle! I don’t care if their cans are “approved,” they don’t work. It’s time to act and require they switch over, as other communities have done, to latching lid containers even if it is “inconvenient” for the wealthy guests they cater to. Maybe if the guests watched those cute cubs or mother bears being shot because of “their inconvenience,” it might change their attitudes.

Until Beaver Creek becomes proactive, “Trash Town” is off my list of vacation destinations.
