Mega comedian Ricky Gervais thinks B.C. conservation officer Bryce Casavant should be reinstated. What do you think?!?
Casavant has been suspended without pay after he refused to eliminate two black bear cubs following the killing of their mother, who was repeatedly raiding somebody’s fish-filled freezer.
He was ordered to pull the trigger on the cubs, but he instead decided to tranquilize the two and take them to a veterinary hospital. They’re now residents at the North Island Wildlife Recovery Association in Errington, located on Vancouver Island.
The recovery centre supports Casavant’s approach, stating that while the mother bear caused problems, “these cubs did nothing.”
When this story went public, an online petition (FOUND HERE) was started, seeking to reinstate the officer.
The B.C. Ministry of Environment is looking into the situation.
Do you think Bryce Casavant should be reinstated? Should he have followed orders?
