The Way I See It:
Did the Help Asheville Bears (H.A.B.) organization ever stop and think that maybe, just maybe both of the bears in question like Donald Trump? Is it not possible that if Leftist Democrats can count on mail-in votes from dead people, perhaps the GOP supporters think that some of those mail-in ballots might actually end up in the woods where these bears roam. I mean, the GOP may not want to be accused of "Black" bear voter suppression, now would they?
All kidding aside, if these bears are already suffering from heavy collars and bolts through their ears, does anybody really think that 1/16th oz. sticker will be an over-burden for a Black Bear. I'm thinking that if H.A.B. has a gripe on the Black Bear's behalf, it should be with the group responsible for the heavy collars and bolts through the ears people.
Wild guess, the bear doesn't know the sticker is there, now does he/she/it? I mean it's not like "TRUMP 2020 was shaved into their fur. Would the bear people be just as upset if the stickers said "BIDEN 2020"? Although the stickers are a bit uncalled for, they hardly come under the heading of "Cruel and Heartless". Time for the folks at H.A.B. to "cow-bear"-up and try to see the humor in this prank. If stickers can be put on, they can be removed, doncha think?
That's the way I see it...
