The consequences of humans feeding bears
re: Globe and Mail article (1 Sep 2010) “BC devises plan to get grow-op bears to return to the wild.”
The truth is harsh but true. If you want to save each and everyone of these bears then everyone that they encounter for the rest of their lives will have to give them huge amounts of dog food or they will get ‘anxious’.
These bears are habituated and from my experience the likelihood of ‘saving’ them is remote indeed. These bear-loving people are actually harming the bear.
Leave them to their natural food.
