The Fur-Bearers is offering a $1000 reward for information/conviction of those responsible for a black bear being shot, killed, burned and dumped in Tappen, BC.

According to media reports, the Conservation Officer Service is investigating after a member of the public discovered the decomposing remains of a black bear. The dead bear was left whole, which is in violation of the law that requires hunters to remove all edible portions of the animal.

It is disturbing that someone is out there treating wildlife in this way. We are hopeful that the reward may provide incentive for individuals with knowledge of what occurred to come forward and assist the Conservation Officer Service in their investigation.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) line at 877-952-7277.Information on coexisting with wildlife, including bears, can be found at www.TheFurBearers.com.
