We’re killing our bears

Speaking to the Northern Sentinel on Friday, June 14, Conservation Officer Service’s Sgt. Tracy Walbauer said it only takes one day of feeding on garbage for a bear to become habituated, which is when they become a danger to the public.

He said it’s clear people are not getting the message about attractants, so conservation officers and the District of Kitimat have stepped up enforcement. He said another concern for the conservation office had been the influx of people to the region for the projects. However, companies like LNG Canada have been very proactive in developing waste and wildlife management strategies.
