Human-Wildlife Conflict

Human wildlife conflict is a serious issue in British Columbia, and each year too many bears and other wildlife are killed because of human decisions and behaviour.

However, there are a variety of simple things that each of us can do that make a big difference in preventing human wildlife conflicts.  When endorsed and supported by an entire community, these activities have the power to prevent dangerous wildlife from entering our communities, and becoming a public safety concern.

Predator Conflicts & Statistics

Conservation Officer Service’s Predator Statistics are updated monthly and summarize Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) calls and the actions Conservation Officers took. 

These statistics capture information for black bear, grizzly bear and cougar reports and responses from April, 2011. 

Monthly updates of the predator conflicts and statistics are temporarily postponed due to new database system issues. We are working to expedite this process as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
