On our mixed farm in Quebec (Canada) we normally destroy 30 bears a year (as high as 100). They roll in; eat; trample; (destroy) 20-40 acres of grain corn every year.(they are hunted in the woods and so they come to eat on the farms) What if the conservation officers fed the bears in the woods, and we hunted them off the farms for a few years?)
