This is exactly the forum for passing along critical information that serves to educate people inRead More the end of saving heartache down the road for our fellow inhabitants of this planet. I was speaking from experience and felt the need to share critical and yes perhaps uncomfortable to hear advice.

I have a hard time with cats on the loose due to my love for birds. With the loss of Linda's cat IRead More can hear her pain with the death of him. Everyone has made the point and I think she understands. But the real tragedy here is if bears death went for naught. There are other animals that could or have lost their lives in a fumigation. So bear could serve as a mascot for a non profit educational program for changes to the fumigation regs and go to companies and ask them to put microphones under the tents before fumigation and some escape routes if possible. Even just having the last layer be see through so that any animal can be seen. Microphones during the day and overnight could very well assist in detecting animals. If nothing is done to education after this tragedy then that is real tragedy.

Richard. I know this article is rather old. Your comment made me think...I recently installed a petRead More door on my front porch for a local outside cat that has sort of adopted us. That way he has a place to get out of the rain and to sleep more in peace. I can adjust it to either work normal (both ways) or to only let an animal pass through it in or out depending on how we set it. Maybe these fumigation tents could have a small pet door on them that lets animals ''out'' only. Seems like that would be simple enough. Ours only cost $20 and could easily be adapted to use with these tents.
