Maple Ridge small flock decimated.
A farmer in Maple Ridge is sounding the alarm over the increased presence of bears that have “decimated the specialty poultry.”
Pascale Shaw operates the Rainbow Eggs Farm in the Whonnock community, and said bears have destroyed fences and posts, in addition to reducing her stock of chickens from between 80 and 100 to a single hen and her chicks.
The bears destroyed 30 or 40, she explained, and she hastily sold or gifted the rest.
