Tourism profits at expense of residents


September 6, 2018

This is to applaud Nathaniel Motes for exposing the actions of the Chilkoot Bear Foundation and its employees. I live with these bears and also have been accosted by a “bear monitor” who was really nothing more than a bus driver trying to preserve a photo opportunity. And as for pot holes being mentioned, make no mistake about it, Alaska Nature Tours and the bear foundation have one interest: money. They are 90 percent responsible for destroying the road, illegally impersonating a wildlife ranger and clogging the road to impassable. The bear foundation is a front for revenue generated by all but guaranteeing their clients will see a bear. Dan Egolf you do not own the Chilkoot, but you do a great job destroying the road and making people believe you are the authority here on the Chilkoot.
