Letter: Reading bear signs

We recently saw something quite unusual as we descended the Resurrection Pass Trail via Bean Creek. Within a quarter-mile of our car we passed a dozen piles of bear scat. It became easy to deduce the cause. There is suddenly a two-lane road under construction by gigantic roaring vehicles.

Perhaps this is just a preview of the wildlife disruption and slaughter on this thoughtlessly located 10 miles of new highway, which will obviously separate bears from their riverine salmon meals. There are a couple of proposed underpasses. Since bears and other animals cannot read directional “safety” signage, perhaps we could attempt to read their signs?
