Conservationist 'shocked' by video of B.C. girls handfeeding bears through patio door
A bear conservationist says she is shocked by Instagram videos showing two Vancouver-area girls hand-feeding black bears through an open patio door. In one of the videos, the two unidentified girls giggle when a bear cub swats at one of them after she gave it a cracker. Another video shows a girl feeding a cub a cracker through the sliding door. In a third, a man, who appears to be their father, feeds an adult-sized bear a full package of crackers through the same door.
