Letter: Dens for bears, but what about housing for people?

Why build dens for bears when there are people in need of housing?

I’m puzzled as to why some individuals are putting out a lot of effort to build more dens for an animal that is very common in BC – black bears.

If the cost is completely voluntary – nothing from the force of taxation, then it is their free choice.

But with many humans needing shelter, why are they spending time on bears?
