Living with Bears: Embracing a Miracle of Nature

Between 2011 and 2020, nearly 5000 bears were killed by the Conservation Officer Service (COS) in British Columbia. Last year alone, 631 bears were killed. This year, the cruel trend continues. Bear traps are popping up in our neighbourhoods; bears are trapped, killed, and their bodies dumped somewhere in a landfill. As always, all this happens in the name of a distorted notion of public safety.
