Episode 119: The right to bear

This week we’re taking a look at bears, with interviews outlining two different and unfortunate circumstances.

First, Mike McIntosh of Bear With Us Sanctuary and Rehabilitation joins Defender Radio to update us on the return of the Ontario spring bear hunt, what it means for bears in the province and what every single one of us can do. He'll also introduce us to a new website, OntarioSpringBearHunt.ca.

Following that, we’ll hear from Bev McMullen, a news photographer who was both eyewitness and ultimately the avenger of a bear who was beaten to near-death with a rock in Northern Ontario. The bear was later found, unfortunately deceased. But thanks to the photographs Bev was able to snap, a man is now facing charges.

We’ll also be joined by Brad Gates of Gates' Wildlife Control to answer one of the most common questions raised during wildlife conflict in the home.
