Conservation officers need help with B.C.'s bear problem

Post by IronNoggin » Thu Jan 16, 2020 3:11 pm

The biggest reason for more problem bears is that bear populations are increasing, and as they do they expand their range, including into populated areas. Then along comes a year like 2019 where food supplies are short and, voila! Bears go after whatever is available, including what's in people’s homes, gardens, chicken houses, and wherever else something smells and tastes good.

Certainly sounds familiar here in Ontario!
