I was sad to see this summer that another black bear had been shot and killed, in North Vancouver.
This time it was a mother bear with her cubs, which is shocking, as this mother bear was protecting her cubs from a barking dog. This bear and her cubs should have been tranquilized and taken to a remote area.
Also, people should keep garbage secured so bears cannot get inside, as this was the case in this instance.
I hope this slaughter of our wildlife will stop, as we have to learn to live with them. They are part of our environment and should be treated with respect.
