Know the West

Without a whimper


Thank you for a well-written article on this amazing animal (“A quiet goodbye to the Selkirk caribou,” HCN, 5/28/18). Author Ben Long captured my thoughts on how we got them to this place, and the lack of voices for their needs to be heard. I saw them up close just over a decade ago, about four or five caribou. Truly spectacular. It is sad to learn that they are likely to be gone, without, perhaps, an audible whimper.
