There is growing concern in Squamish about wildlife becoming too used to humans. This has resulted in a mother bear and her two cubs being euthanized.
Some Squamish residents are upset after three bears were destroyed by conservation officers on Sunday.
A sow and her two cubs were put down due to their “high level of habituation and some of their behaviours,” Conservation Officer Dean Miller said.
Even though the bears were destroyed after breaking through the fence of a construction site and going through their garbage, it wasn't a one-off situation.
