Viewer Comment of the Week: Re: Residents upset that bear was dispatched in P-Patch

right wing 11/1/2011

…the correct outcome was met…some tranquilizer drugs cause extreme excitement and dysphoria (high anxiety) before the animal goes down…..when tranquilizing an animal of this size have to guess at the weight and how much drug to use...could take anywhere from five minutes to 1/2 an hour, if they get a shot in the muscle...a bear with high anxiety and extremely excited running around a neighbourhood full of kids on Halloween.

Move your keyboard back, computer too.
Put your hands behind your head and slam your forehead on the desk...thinking clearer now?

"Once the bear has developed the habit of eating human food, it will not return to its natural wild diet. Bears that have been captured alive and moved many kilometres away simply return. The bears have to be shot."
