In 2004, a white bear cub named Maskwa was born in Manitoba, and people flocked to see, feed, and photograph the little white bear and her mother. Unfortunately, the mother bear was killed by a car, and Maskwa ended up in a zoo. This tragic story is a reminder to keep our bears wild by storing garbage and all other attractants indoors to prevent bears from becoming habituated and human food conditioned. Let’s work together as a community to ensure that the white cubs in Elkford stay wild and do not meet a tragic fate.
