The BC Conservation Officer Service has been doing an incredible job on social media lately, sharing not only warnings but also offering glimpses into the important work they do protecting wildlife in our province. Their Twitter account @_BCCOS is a source of inspiration (and a few laughs), and their Facebook Page is also active with moose, fish, bears and other critters. Both show their work to keep humans accountable for how many animals they harvest, and that they do it within the rules, as well as preventing “human wildlife conflicts”.
Below are a few bear photos they’ve posted over the past while. From relocating grizzlies and kermodes to showing 4 cubs in a tree, some of these are humorous while others have a more serious theme. It’s ridiculous to think that we live in such close proximity to these incredible beasts.
Oh, and don’t worry about the ones who look like they might have… er… expired; they’ve simply been tranquilized and are on their way to safer homes than the ones they stumbled into.
