...are nothing like their Mexican counterparts. On Wednesday, police in Vancouver raided an illegal marijuana growing operation and were greeted by security beyond even the arsenal of Los Zetas. Instead of booby-traps, dogs, or watchmen, the field was guarded by at least 14 wild bears. This actually makes sense when you consider how high the growers must have been.
But maybe surrounding the bears with weed wasn't such a good idea. One officer recalls "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." The bears were so mellow that they just chilled and goofed around for a bit.
As in Mexican drug crime, most of the victims here will also be gang members. The bears, who have grown accustomed to humans, will likely have to be put down.
