A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever poached a bear and harvested the animal’s organs. According to North Shore News, the stench of death led to the grim discovery of the black bear on the West Lake fire road, in Vancouver, B.C., in early July.
The couple who found the dead, young bear noted that its stomach had been sliced open, and they found discarded ice packs and disposable gloves nearby. Now, the North Shore Black Bear Society and the Fur-Bearers are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to whoever is responsible for the bear’s death.
There is speculation that whoever poached the bear may have been seeking the animal’s organ’s for “medicinal purposes.” Anyone with information in this case is asked to call the province’s Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) line at 877-952-7277.
