A Richmond man has been found guilty of trafficking in bear parts and ordered to pay more than 17,000 dollars in fines.
That’s one of numerous enforcement activies recently reported by the Conservation Officer Service.
Deputy chief Chris Doyle says there were a couple of incidents C-O’s were involved with on the Sunshine Coast…..
Doyle says with the potential for snowfall, it’s important for residents and businesses to secure bear attractants.
He says the animals will be starting to den soon but for those who still need to pack on some calories there may be a move into more populated areas to do that.
