A conservation officer was suspended from work for refusing to kill bear cubs.

Conservation officer Bryce Casavant was punished for saving the lives of two scared bear cubs. Bryce was ordered to euthanize the cubs but he refused do it.


In the footage, you can see the two cubs in the backyard of someone’s house. The officers approach the bears trying to restrain them.


Casavant soon realizes that the cubs posed no real threat and were just scared. According to his job, he was supposed to kill cubs, but he just couldn’t do it.

He understood that the authorities would punish him for this, but he didn’t care. He knew the cubs didn’t deserve to die.

The bears were transferred to the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre and were named Jordan and Athena. They were later released into the wild.

Casavant, meanwhile, was dismissed from his position.
