Marijuana Growers Use Bears to Guard Stash

It turns out the bears were actually incredibly ineffective guards. Assuming they were, how exactly did the growers think that they would get past them to harvest their product? If I can make a blanket statement; the minute your illicit drug use leads to you seriously considering seeking the assistance of a bear ... you missed a few other glaring neon signs that it was time to turn your life around.

"Police said Wednesday they were astonished to find at least 14 wild black bears guarding an illegal marijuana growing operation after a recent raid on the property in westernmost Canada.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sergeant Fred Mansveld said police believe two growers arrested in the raid had used dog food to lure the animals onto the remote property in southeastern British Columbia, to deter marijuana thieves.

Police commonly find dogs, human guards or booby-traps on Canadian marijuana growing operations or "grow-ops." In comparison, these bears did a very poor job as guard animals when five policemen arrived.

"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," said Mansveld.
