Ignorance and feeding wildlife by people is what creates problems. You can't blame the animal.
LOL thats the position our Game Wardens are taking in my area as well and as far as I am concerned its a good position to take.
Most of BC is pretty well as you describe in Ontario. Camped in tents many times and take precautions and have never had a serious issue re bears.
Problem we have in our developed area is people move here and they think because they live in a city/urban area that bears should not be here as they believe them to be really dangerous. Actually had a guy write a letter to our local paper complaining last summer that he called the Game Wardens a number of times to come and deal with a bear that keeps showing up in his yard and they refused to come. The guy was outraged over how his tax dollars were not being spent! But he what he was most mad about was the bears keeping ripping apart a beehive he had built in his backyard!
Some folks just don't get it!
