The parents of a boy killed by a bear are suing because they weren't warned that a troublesome bear was known to be in the area. Last year while camping and hiking, I saw moose, buffalo, three rattlesnakes and a bear. Wild animals often come into camping areas. It's not uncommon for wild animals to damage a tent or food container, but attacks by wild animals are extremely rare.

It's unrealistic to expect government agencies to inform people about every possible mishap.

This tragedy wasn't anybody's fault.
