New York Petition - Capture & rehabilitate the injured and lost black bear roaming WNY.
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
This summer, a wild black bear has been wandering around Western New York.
He has not attacked any animal or human throughout his whole journey around the western part of the state. He is lost, hungry, and now injured.
A week and a half ago, he was struck by an automobile on a local highway, and injured his leg.
Recent sightings in Getzville, NY, include reports that the male bear has an injured leg, and no food. He has been going up to back porches and taking the food from bird feeders. The local police were even quoted saying that the bear came up to them and laid down.
The local police have simply been following the bear around and trying to scare it away from residential areas, and not offering any help to the injured bear. The Department of Enviromental Conservation has also stated that the bear is too close to residential areas to tranquilize or stun the bear. The bear clearly shows no threat to any residents due to it’s injury, making that claim questionable.
Sign this petition to help our local bear get captured and rehabilited instead of letting it roam hungry, alone, and injured. It needs help desperately.
