Okay, IMHO2u, Matt4685 used "ignorant", "mentally handicapped", "****ing schmuck", "****ing frilly lace underwearing pansy". You used "you moron". So while you used great restraint in not going name-for-name in each post, you did stoop to his level to a lesser degree. So after a second look, good job (with an *).

Its easy to sit from the sideline and say what shouldve been done after it has already happened. Obviously the outcome isnt what people wanted. What is important now is to see how the DNR, PPD, etc respond now. Will there be training for such events? Will all officers have quick access to trancquilizers? Will the public learn that they are not helping and actually a hinderance? If we dont learn from our mistakes then we are destined to repeat them.

Hey Matt why don't YOU get over it! I have the same right to an opinion as you do. Take some anger management classes or something. Your intolerance of others opinions is appalling. Only angry, unintelligent people resort to name calling. Get over yourself!!

@Matt4685-you very well may be one of the incompetent PPD or DNR officers who didn't do their job very well. If the PPD is so weak they can't get a bunch of yahoos to go home then God help us in a real emergency! It is called Law Enforcement...get it you moron?? If they can't enforce then they need to get a job they can do!!

If PPD can't control a bunch of gawkers then we are in real trouble!! HIRE OFFICERS WHO CAN AND WILL DO THEIR JOB!! What happened was uncalled for and inexcusible!! It happens all the time around the country and the animal is safely located back to the wild. They were itching to shoot a bear and they used a lame excuse to do so....blaming it on the crowd!! DO YOUR JOB AND CONTROL THE CROWD OR JUST ADMIT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR A BEAR HUNT!!!

Let’s see an over weight bear wondering around aimlessly must have been on bath salts. Did they check his pockets for a Boma Phone? I did hear he had a Newell for Mayor card in his pocket.

I blame the bystanders and gawkers for the decision to put the bear down for keeps. It's unfortunate but the correct decision was made!

He-he-he. Put a half dozen of the whiners in a locked room with a hungry, ill tempered bear, and give 'em a 50 caliber machine gun along with a dart gun. Stir that bear up, and see which gun they pick up when the bear goes nuts. People kill me.

This law enforcement cant hunt down a drug dealer without help! The only thing about that is the drug dealers would shoot back. Our law enforcement is worthless, city and county. Prepare yourself for a Boston type emergency because we will be on our own. Sorry for the bear but thankful no Innocent person taking out their trash or a child out past curfew became a statistic.

Well that is the problem with Parkersburg.. There is no entertainment. If you are stupid enough to get close to a bear, you deserve to be maimed. As my mother once said, " You cannot fix stupid" Next time use a fire hose to spray on people, bet that will get their dumb******out of the way
