It is a shame that some people just don’t get it.
Not only have there been six or more cars parked on a corner near Minnekhada Regional Park recently, which makes driving in the area difficult, but they are flagrantly parked in clear violation of the temporary no-parking signs put up by the city of Coquitlam.
On top of that, there have been anywhere from two to three, and up to a dozen, people looking at the salmon-bearing stream daily since the middle of October, with some spending up to all daylight hours there. No, not to see the salmon, but in hopes of catching a glimpse or take a photo of a bear, or possibly bear cubs with mother bear seeking food in the stream.
This simply indicates to the bear that people and food go together. You figure it out but, in all likelihood, when the bear does the math, it is going to end up in trouble and likely get shot for being a nuisance bear down the road.
Come on people, how long do we have to keep talking about best practices for keeping the bears out of trouble and people safe?
