Tressie Dutchyn started this petition to Nova Scotia Department of Department of Natural Resources and Renewables (Premier of Nova Scotia: Honourable Tim Houston) and

Nova Scotia has denied a wildlife sanctuary's request to be allowed to care for orphaned black bear cubs and then release them back into the wild. Instead. The Department of Lands and Forestry euthanizes bear cubs that are orphaned or injured. 

Research from across Canada shows that black bear cubs can be safely rehabilitated and released without posing a threat to the public.  Hope for Wildlife in Nova Scotia has rehabilitated and successfully released thousands of animals over the years.  They have the expertise, knowledge and space to rehabilitate black bear cubs and should be granted permission and support by the The Department of Natural Resources and Renewables (previously Department of Forestry in Nova Scotia). 

Let's not see another baby black bear cub killed needlessly when there is a skilled wildlife rehabilitator ready and willing to care for the orphaned cubs and release them back into the wild with the skills they will need to live out their lives naturally in the wild without posing a threat to the public.
