Photo was ‘inappropriate’

Special to the DailyThis photo, which ran in Town Talk on Aug. 2, 2008, shows a bear rifling through the Dumpster near the Mirabelle's restaurant in Beaver Creek. A letter writer criticized the Vail Daily for running the photo, as well as the Beaver Creek community for not disposing of trash property.

I am horrified that you would print a picture of the trash Dumpster at Mirabelle’s, complete with a bear and what I think is an inappropriate caption. (Town Talk, Aug. 2)

With all the publicity about bears and trash, particularly with regard to the irresponsible Beaver Creek community, you should have thought again before treating the incident as humorous. In addition, the staff at Mirabelle’s needs a) an education and b) a citation and a fine.
