bear

Officials with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife
in the United States killed a young black bear near Hagg Lake on Thursday, June 13th after the creature had become habituated to humans because so many people were feeding it.

The bear was excited to communicate for the blog. Here is our communication on 6/23/19.

A. How old are you?
B. 4

A. How long have you been on your own, without your mom?
B. I left my mom in 2018 – My mom is still alive deep within the forest range.

A. How did you find Hagg Lake?
B. Literally ran into the area while foraging.

A. Why or who were you running from?
B. Humans.

A. We communicators hear the animals have their own type of “world wide web”, is this true and when you find areas with good feeding do you share location with others like you?
B. Yes, sort of – We are constantly communicating with others like how you are communicating with me today. We do not necessarily share feeding areas with others who are not in our immediate families but we do warn others of dangerous human areas.

A. When you were killed last week did you reach out and warn other bears?
B. Yes.

A. I understand that animals are often in humans lives to teach them. Did you know your fate with humans ahead of time?
B. No. I had hope that I would not be killed for eating the food humans offered me.

A. Was this killing a lesson for humans?
B. Yes.
A. How so?
B. Learning. Humans love, hate us and are scared of us all at the same time. Wild animals are often misunderstood. It’s time to bridge that gap. There will be some that read this article who had fed me. This lesson is big for them.

A. Do you want the humans who fed you to feel guilt or shame?
B. No – We want humans to love and understand beyond themselves.

ओरेगनको माछा र वन्यजन्तु विभागसंग मिलेर अधिकारीहरूले संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिकाको ह्याग ताल मा जुन १३ गते बिहिवार को दिन एउटा युवा कालो भालू मारेका थिए किन भने त्यो भालू मानिस हरु सन्घ बस्ने बानि भैसकेको थियो अनि उनिहरुले भालूलाइ खाना खुवाउने गर्थ्ये।

यो ब्लोग्को लागि सन्चार गर्ने भालू उत्साहित थियो। ६/२३/१९ मा गरेको सन्चार यस प्रकार को छ।

कः तिम्रो उमेर कति भयो?
खः ४

कः आफ्नो आमा बिना तिमी एक्लै बसेको कति समय भयो?
खः मैले २०१८ मा मेरो आमालाइ छोडेको। मेरो आमा अझै नि गहिरो जंगल भित्र जिउँदै हुनुन्छ।

कः ह्याग ताल कसरी भेट्यौ तिमीले?
खः चर्दै भाग्दै गै रहेको बेला त्यो छेत्रमा पुगेको म।

कः किन र को देखि भागि रहेको थियौ तिमी?
खः मनिस।

कः हामी सन्चारकर्मी हरुले सुनेको जनवार हरु को आफ्नै प्रकारको ”बिश्व ब्यापी सन्जल” हुनछ हरे अनि के यो साचो हो कि तिमीहरुले राम्रो चरन गर्ने ठाउ भेटायो भने अरु संग पनि बाड्छौ?
खः हो भन्दा नि हुन्छ- हामी निरन्तर अरु जनवार सघं यसरी नै सन्चार गरि रहन्छुम। हाम्रो परिवार भन्दा बाहेक अरु लाई चरन गर्ने ठाउ देखाउदैनम तर खतराजनक मनिस छेत्र हरु बारे सन्केत चै दिन्छम।

कः गएको हप्ता तिम्रो म्रित्यु हुदा के तिमीले अरु भालूहरु लाई सचेत गराएको थियौ?
खः थिए।

कः म बुझ्छु कि प्राय जसो जनवार हरु मनिसलाई सिकाउन उनरु मझ बस्छन। के तिमीलाई मानिस सघंको आफ्नो भाग्य समय अघि थाहा थियो?
खः नाइ। मलाई आशा चै थियो कि मनिस हरुले दिएको खाना खाए बापत म मारिन्न होला भनेर।

कः के तिम्रो म्रित्यु मानिसहरूको लागि एउटा पाठ होला र?
खः हुन्छ।
कः कसरी?
खः सिक्न। मनिस हरु ले हामी लाई माया गर्छन, घृणा गर्छन अनि हामी देखि डराउछन पनि।
वन्यजन्तुहरु प्राय: गलत बुझिन्छ। यो समय दुइ बिच को अंतर हटाउने हो। मलाई खाना खुवाउने मध्ये कोहि न कोहि ले यो लेख सायद पढ्छन होला। यो पाठ तिनीहरूको लागि ठूलो छ।

कः के तिमीलाई खाना खुवाउने मनिस हरु ले दोषी वा शर्म महसुस गरोस भनेर चाहान्छौ?
खः होइन- हामी चाहान्छौ कि मनिस हरुले हामीलाइ माया गारोस र धेरै बुझोस।
