Bears ‘Guard’ Cannabis Fields

A marijuana farm in western Canada has been raided by police, but officers were left shocked when they found bears guarding it.

Around 13 black bears strolled around the fields but police soon realised that they showed no signs of aggressive behaviour and were in fact tame.

They are thought to have been lured into the British Columbian farm by dog food and officers said they might have to be put down if they’ve become used to living around humans, the BBC reported.

Police uncovered two separate outdoor marijuana crops of about 2,300 plants in total.

The five police officers were called to the marijuana plantation, near Christina Lake, to dismantle the farm and arrested two men in the process, while stumbling across the bears.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police sergeant Fred Mansvield, said: ‘They (the bears) 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.’
