$5,000 Reward For Info On Baby Bear
A $5,000 reward is being posted for any information concerning the killing of the baby bear cub in Estes Park on August 12. Bears Are Us is posting reward money of $4,500 and Operation Game Thief has a reward of $500 for a total of $5,000! Many thanks to all the caring people who provided donations. Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are investing this poaching crime. The 20 pound female bear cub was shot in the stomach, and she did not die a quick death. Witnesses reported hearing the mother bear calling to her baby as the little cub was pulled from a creek and was dying on the bank. After the cub died and was removed, the mother stayed in the area searching for days for her baby. We hope someone may have heard or seen something or may have spoken to someone who may have information concerning the person or persons who did this cruel and senseless killing. Any On Saturday, October 13, Rebecca Luna, owner and founder of Rebecca's Herbal Apothecary in Boulder, will return to the Estes Park Museum to lead a workshop about making herbal tea. This session will take place at the Museum located at 200 Fourth Street from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. Participants will learn about plants native to Estes Park and fill tea bags with their own special blend to bring home with them at the end of the program. Advanced registration is required in addition to a $12 fee payable by cash the day of the program. Call the Museum at 970?586?6256 to register. Luna has been steeped in Herbalism since the early 1990s when she attended Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies (RMCBS), where she received both her Herbalist and Clinical Herbalist certifications. She was a core faculty member at RMCBS and also taught at Bastyr University in Seattle Washington. Today her independent business seeks to connect the community with botanical medicine by providing raw materials, education and carefully crafted products with the belief that these services will empower the community to reclaim health and knowledge about our collective environment. Luna and her staff encourage others to use and create medicines like our grandparents and person who has any information or who has seen any suspicious activity should contact Operation Game Thief at 877- 265-6648 or call District Wildlife Manager Rick Spowart at 970-667-2984. Verizon cell phone users can dial #OGT. Information can also be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. People with information can remain anonymous. If you would like to donate money to further increase the reward, please deposit checks made out to Bears Are Us in the Bank of Estes Park (on Park Lane by Bond Park and the Town Hall).
