Save just one life!

This little cub is starving. We need California Fish and Game to release this cub to the Lake Tahoe facility so it can regain it's health, be rehabilitated and then to be released into the wild far away from humans. We have a carrier, a way of getting the cub to Lake Tahoe and the facility in Lake Tahoe has a place for it. Fish and Game have stated "if the cub lives, fine - if the cub dies, fine" this is just not acceptable when there is a place that will help the cub now named Little One. Please help to get California Fish and Game to release the cub for rehabilitation.

      Fish and Game sent someone up here in secret. They did not come and ask for help to find the cub or make their presence known. They want to euthanize this cub so they can be rid of it! I have worked for two weeks on this. As I have said, we have a carrier, transportation and a certified place to take the cub. Please support us.

    5. May be put to death, not acceptable!

      From Fish and Game: Yesterday I sent a biologist to Forest Falls to look for the cub and he was unable to locate it. He along with other Department biologists reviewed the photos and video you sent and feel the cub appears to be undernourished and likely in need of assistance. Consistent with our policy, the Department will attempt to capture the cub. The Department will send someone out to attempt to capture it for transport to our Wildlife Investigations Lab where it will be examined by our wildlife veterinarians. Once they have evaluated its condition they will either hold it temporarily for treatment and placement in captivity, or if no facilities can be found or its health is so poor that extreme efforts to maintain its life are required, it may ultimately have to be euthanized. This unfortunate decision may have to be made because based on conversations with residents; we have determined that the cub has become habituated and dependent upon humans.

      ALL animals deserve to be treated with compassion and respect. Are we not animals ourselves? It is not man's calling to alter or disrupt nature, but to live in harmony with ALL Earth's creatures.
