So how did a bear from California end up in a shelter in Michigan to begin with?

I have not heard of this either outdoor lover so don't feel bad. It came all the way to Muskegon from California for a bad eye????? I know Denver has a great veterinary program and im sure California does too. So why did it come all this way?

You people just focus on the negative. The WMSPCA is an animal sanctuary and rehabilitation center for wildlife and other mammals. I am sure they have a reason why they have the bear. Animal rescues from around the country communicate with each other. I know the WMSPCA has a great reputation as does everything they can to save animals lives. Remember they are an animal rescue, the animals are usually injured or abused when they get there. A nother thing the media always blows everthing out of proportion so you will watch it!

I give this couple alot of credit for spending all their xtra time (on top of their regular jobs) taking care of all these animals, I have seen them take care of some that where injured or neglected, Its just to bad that people notice when something negative has happened, but have not giving them the credit for all the good that they do, I have taken my children there a couple of times to see them all, they love it, Thank you for what you do!!

I DONT FOUCOS ON THE NEGATIVE.. if you have read any of my other posts. also they r in the wrong for not telling no one. when the bear was first sighting i heard it on my police scnner, on sunday night at 8:45pm it was on broadway and devowe, i called the SPCA several times and got the answering machine then finnally got Jim to pick up i told him what i had heard and eairly that day i heard one of thier bear got lose, so i told him were it was located at, and he said no it is not my bear, i said o ok well i just called to let you know it has been spottined if it was , so u can go get it b4 some kills it. and again i am not negative about it or animals of any type. i did volunteer work there quite a few times and they do a great job. i would live out there if i could to be there to help all the time. so i hope u see were this is going. thanks
