The Fur-Bearers has sent a letter to the Auditor General of British Columbia, calling for an independent audit of the British Columbia Conservation Officer Service (BCCOS).

For years, the number of black bears killed by conservation officers across British Columbia remains high and virtually unchanged. British Columbians have challenged the agency’s use of lethal force against wildlife and questioned its effectiveness in reducing negative encounters between humans and animals. Ensuring that the people of BC are receiving value for their money is critical to maintain public trust in the BCCOS.
