So this makes 167 bears killed because of attacks, conflicts, or threats this year in BC. 163 black bears and 4 grizzly bears. I hope anti-hunters and animal activists see that if there is no hunting, the animal population loses it’s fear of man and will continue to have these conflicts. Bear hunting in BC has declined and is not keeping up to the population increase of bears. People who disagree with hunting bears need to give their head a shake and realize that they live in a house that obstructs wildlife habitat and therefore causes conflict.
