It's fantastic what this couple did. People are standing up for animals and taking needed actions for preservation and hope.

And frankly, for now, sod the conservation officers and all their god-like thinking and activities. It was a huge risk contacting them in the first place. But, so far, the little cub has a chance of survival because of the defiance by these two people.

Congratulations with all my heart to this couple. Frankly, more and more citizens must stand up to the BC Conservation Officer Service and defy its threats. 

This organization has no third-party accountability and officers act as gods unto themselves. Only when this changes will I ever give them a chance to be a respected body. Their often simplified pulling the trigger, dropping the hammer and destroying animals is just not right.

So, good on this couple. Well done. And I sincerely hope to read many more such articles.
