A Calgary wildlife biologist is concerned that an injured black bear is becoming conditioned to human contact the longer it’sÂ allowed to remain in the wild without being rehabilitated, despite an Alberta government policy designed specifically to prevent that outcome.
The youngÂ black bear, which has been spotted every few days for monthsÂ in a farmer’s fieldÂ along Highway 22, about 40 kilometres west of Calgary,Â favours one of its hind legs and doesn’t allow the otherÂ to touch the ground.
“We really, really hope that veterinarian intervention can happen here,”Â LisaÂ DahlseideÂ told CBC News on Friday.
She says the bear has been showing signs of chronic pain
