Conservation Officer Rescues 2 Orphaned Bear Cubs And Gets Suspended For Sparing Their Lives
Can compassion be considered a crime? A British Columbia conservation officer was suspended without pay for saving, instead of killing two baby bears.
They were spotted in the residential area after their mother was captured and euthanized for repeatedly breaking into houses. Bryce Casavant was given the order to euthanize the cubs as well but instead, realizing they were just looking for their mom, he sent them to a rehabilitation facility. After the story was published, the public reaction and their support for the suspended officer have been overwhelming. Where do you stand on this one?
