Anti-bear hunting graffiti concerns residents

  • Mar. 31, 2008 6:00 p.m.

Graffiti that appeared on the concrete barriers beside the Tlell River bridge over the weekend is not popular with some Tlell residents. Linda Berston lives on Beitush Road and is one of five women who walk there most mornings. She says the group picks up trash and likes to keep the area looking good, so they were particularly concerned about the vandalism.It’s “.a nasty piece of graffiti that is not really helpful to the anti-bear hunting, but it is annoying to the residents,” Ms Berston told the Observer Monday morning. “We just want to have a nice peaceful walk without having to look at this ugly thing that I don’t believe will help the cause,” she said. “It’s not our fault that there is a bear lodge at the end of our road,” she said Ms Berston, “It really annoyed us this morning.”
