Kudos to Mike McLeod for standing up for those who have no voice in his April 22 letter to the editor.
You took the words right out of my mouth when it comes to defending the bears and alligators and all of the wildlife that we humans have driven out of their natural habitat.
Being an American Indin (not a typo), I highly respect and regard all forms of life. What is happening to these beautiful creatures is exactly what happened to my ancestors many moons ago, and we know the "rest of that story."
To quote John Muir: "When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
Keep vigilant, Mike and Manatee County! Thank you!
