The MNR says they don’t think the remains of a dead bear found outside Bracebridge is the cause of illegal actions. Jolanta (Yo-lanta) Kowalski with the ministry says officials checked the remains and could not find shell casings or bullet holes in what was left behind. She did say, however, the bear carcass was missing and the remains were left in a strange position.
The bear was reported to the Ministry through an anonymous source who had sent a photo to officials. The remains were found on Monsell Road just off Fraserburg.
