Gander Newfoundland – I just don’t understand how some people think.   Little Gander the bear pictured above was euthanized because he was too…..friendly.

Apparently he kept coming back into contact with people and after a failed attempt to relocate him deeper into the forest he kept coming back.   I’m not sure I want to visit Newfoundland much after reading about the little guy’s plight… I know I’m not an expert, but surely there could’ve been some other option?   A Zoo even?    This little guy didn’t do anything wrong.  He wasn’t destructive or violent.    What a world we live in….
