Instead of killing wildlife (bears), the public needs to be educated about bears and fines need to be handed out to households that do not follow wildlife precaution laws (leaving garbage on roadside the night before pick up, leaving fruit on trees, feeding wildlife).
Where exactly are the bears supposed to live and find food?
Urban sprawl, increased human population, clear cutting of acreages/crown land, forest fires, drought, less berries and all the other challenges caused by climate change leave few options for the wildlife in Canada.
Let’s learn how to live with the wildlife that is left instead of isolating ourselves from it. I suggest joining a local conservation group or taking the Bear Awareness course. Thank you.
