The recent story in the paper about the capture and relocation of the young grizzly bear rescue was such a great story of co-operation and concern.
It would not have been possible without the efforts of Frank Strain who notified the conservation officer of the cub’s plight and probability of death by vehicle, starvation, or gunshot. Wendy Chambers who represents Northern Lights bear rehabilitation became involved, and with her efforts and the local conservation officer was able to capture the young bear.
The Cedar House donated accommodation for the representatives of Northern Lights of Smithers to travel to Golden to pick up the bear and Steve Paccagnan of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort who donated money from the bear refuge to defray some of their travelling costs. Thanks to all involved and to Jessica for the story and to the Golden Star for telling this very feel good “Golden Story”
