Police were sent on a routine mission in Western Canada based upon a tip they had received regarding a large marijuana farm hidden in the wilderness. As they made their way through the dense forest they stumbled upon something a bit more surreal.
Encircling the compound were a dozen black bears which were seen to be acting as guards over the marijuana crop. Their concerns were quickly calmed after they realized all of the bears were accustomed to living around humans, and were not agressive with the police advance, but were rather docile.
As cute as it may sound, unfortunately bears that are tamed by humans have little chance in the wild, and the fate of the animals is unknown. Two individuals have been arrested so far.
Sergeant Fred Mansveld who was involved in the raid stated regarding that “They were tame, they just sat around watching. At one point one of the bears climbed onto the hood of a police car, sat there for a bit and then jumped off,”
Even more hilarious is this Canadian host ( for a Russian speaking audience. So turn on the subtitles on the vid! ) who is trying to record a piece involving the story. I’ve heard some funny marijuana stories over the years, but sometimes reality is stranger than fiction!
