UPDATE (November 23, 2018): The Fur-Bearers have taken our case to the Supreme Court of Canada, filed another complaint against the COS, and landed front page coverage in the National Post for our ongoing efforts. In the latest article the government indicated they are considering oversight for the COS!
UPDATE (June 5, 2018): The Fur-Bearers return to court on Thursday, June 7 to argue our appeal!
UPDATE (January 5, 2018): The Fur-Bearers have filed for appeal of the court decision that sided with the Conservation Officer Service's authority to kill wildlife that isn't posing a threat. Our legal team is confident that our appeal has grounds, and we're expecting that this could be a game changer for wildlife in British Columbia. Costs are expected to hit $15,000 for this appeal, so please make a donation below to help support our efforts.
We’re seeking a judicial review to determine if the Conservation Officer Service acted within their authority when a bear cub was killed last year – and the costs are adding up.
Legal fees, filing fees, and the resources required to mount this effort have cost us $8,100 as of July 31, and that number may rise to nearly $20,000. Please give a donation or begin a monthly gift (for as little as $5/month) so that we can continue this fight, and continue speaking for the animals.
