Mother Bear and Three Cubs Shot Dead

by Norm Richards

A mother black bear and her three cubs were shot dead on Wednesday September 22, 2010 in Birch River, Manitoba, Canada. These bears had no chance. Dogs drove them up a tree. The town is situated adjacent bear country. Efforts to scare them off failed. These efforts are clearly questionable. The bears are dead. What else can I say? A resident with a rifle was left with making a decision on the lives of these bears. Conservation authorities were not properly prepared. What else could have been done? These bears might still be alive and free if locals were more properly prepared. Do humans living in bear country deserve this? Who should answer for it?

  1. I'd have to agree with you on this. There should definitely be more preparation from the humans living in an area where there are deadly animals. Shoot to kill isn't the best answer. They were there first, but yet we continue to push them further and further. Unfortunately, that leaves them with no other place to go but into towns/communities. After they step foot in town, they become the enemy and feared. It's sad how humans have such little respect for the animal kingdom. Humans would think a little differently if it were happening to them. What would you do if you had a new family, but all of your food was being destroyed by another species? Just a thought.
    You seem like an interesting guy and would love for you to stop by my blog. Really consider what it's about and see the big picture.
    Thanks and take care.
