Conservationist suspended after refusing to kill two bear bear cubs

Sometimes doing the right thing comes at a cost.  British Columbia conservation officer Bryce Casavant was suspended from his job for refusing to kill two bear cubs and instead taking them to a veterinary hospital. The cubs were captured while looking for their mother who had been euthanized by the department after looking for food in a mobile home. In this case, common sense prevailed.  The cubs are now recovering at North Island Wildlife Recovery Association in Errington and after public outcry, the officer’s pay was reinstated.
