"People would pay thousands for the opportunity to hunt bear in the spring," says Hawley. "People are shooting bears out of necessity now and just leaving them. There could be some money made off of that."

Bear encounters are common throughout the rural communities of Frontenac County. The Ministry of Natural Resources Kingston office reports that between 2007 and today, there have been 48 reported bear occurrences in the county, nine of which required an MNR worker to respond with a site visit.
The bear swam across a bay of Sydenham Lake and emerged behind the township office. By this time a crowd had gathered to watch and snap photos.

Brian Davis works at one of the dump sites in Frontenac County. He says that at any given time during the summer months there could be up to 20 bears coming and going from the dump.

"It's like a buffet set out for them," he says. "I've seen people do incredibly stupid things like throwing bread or old donuts to get them to stand up or turn around. People think it is a zoo. It's tragic in a way."
