Mounties raiding two marijuana plantations near the US-Canadian border at Christina Lake were surprised to find 14 wild black bears roaming around freely, and quite contentedly, in the fields and had to proceed with caution.
The bears, however, seemed to be quite tame and very used to humans and one even went and sat on a police car for a while before just jumping off and wandering away.
According to the report, bears that become too friendly or habituated to humans face the prospect of being put down!
The headline of the report read ‘Black bears guard marijuana fields’, but the final sentence used was:
It is unclear if they used the bears to guard the pot fields or just liked having them as pets.
