We shed lots of tears

Dear Editor, At the end of last month, a mother bear was injured in a traffic accident on Highway 49 near Ahwahnee. After it was determined it would be merciful to put her down as she was badly wounded and could be a threat, a Sheriff's Deputy obliged. Unfortunately, two young cubs were left to fend for themselves. We decided to try to get them some help as fast as we could. Days turned into weeks without the cubs being sighted, but then last week we found one of them on the side of the road, hit by a car and dead at the same location where his Mother had met her demise.
