Letter: Conservation officers, leave the ammo behind

The Editor,

To the group of B.C. Conservation Officer Service employees that responded to the report of a female and cubs recently in Coquitlam, please reassess your aggression or need to respond in such a manner to the slaughter of wildlife.

Your job must be a difficult one to have to weigh the apparent correction of the public's fear of animals — and there is some justice in that — but my plea is that you and your group may be persuaded in the future to take no ammunition to these incidents, as a gun without ammo is just a pipe and will do little damage, I am hoping.  

You will be seen as individuals with some sense of concern for life as most of the population is. There is a mounting population that abhors this needless act.

Earle Lewis, Coquitlam
