I used to be a volunteer at the refuge. Let me tell you that these people are wonderful. They really do a great job in caring for the animals. I really hope that you would get the facts correct though. It was not a large black bear. It was a small California Brown bear that was hit by a car. It is blind and deaf. I know that it does not excuse the owners from their responsibility to inform officials of the incident. If they are forced to close, it would be a great injustice to their efforts. I know of a number of teens and young adults that volunteer there due to having to perform community service. They really get alot out of it. They learn responsibility. I hope that it stays open. I challenge anybody to visit sometime and see for yourself.

Maybe there is some sort of monitored probation that can imposed instead. I applaud the mission of the sanctuary, but they need to follow the laws and put the safety of the public over the safety of the animals at all times.

I have adopted animals from this sanctuary, and you're very right, they are wonderful!
I hope this Judge weighs his options and does opt to keep the sanctuary open! One mistake doesn't warrant overlooking all of the good they've done.

This is a great shelter, and they have a wonderful sanctuary for wolfdogs. they are illegal to breed and so this sanctuary offers a home for them. it would be very sad to see this place loose their licence.
