On Saturday, December 28, Jordyn Leigh came across a horrific scene in Beaverdell, B.C. Tragically, someone killed a baby black bear and left its skin and scattered remains behind. Jordyn took photos of the B.C. black bear skin and shared them in the "The Beaverdell/Carmi Post-Its" Facebook group. As of now, The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals has launched an investigation in which they are offering a $1500 reward for information on the culprit.\nThis article contains graphic content that might not be suitable for some readers.\nNarcity spoke with Jordyn Leigh, who told us more about what she saw. "We were out snowmobiling when we approached waste on the path. Our dog Venus was sniffing something off the path, so I got off to take a closer look at what she was getting into, and that’s when I realized it wasn’t garbage but the hide of a bear cub," she explained.\nJudging by the size, she was immediately certain that it was a cub and therefore an illegal kill. "The hide was significantly smaller than our dog, a 100-pound bull mastiff. The paws of the bear were the size of the palm of my hand, which is when we discovered that the cub was not a legal kill but instead poached as it is not two years of age."\nPhotos that Jordyn took at the scene depict waste scattered around a path and the bear's skin laying on the ground. One photo even shows the pelt next to her dog, showing just how tiny the little black bear was.\nJordyn Leigh | Facebook\nJordyn Leigh | Facebook\nJordyn explained that she and her family decided to remove the pelt from the trail as it's a very popular area. They took it to their house originally but decided to bring it back.\n"After discussing it, we decided it’s best to return it where we found it, as my family owns livestock and we didn’t want to risk attracting animals to our property," she told Narcity.\nJordyn Leigh | Facebook\nThough she does not consider herself an expert, she and her family members do hold their hunting licenses. "Whoever did this knew exactly what to do and was very experienced with bears," Jordyn told us.\nAccording to The Fur-Bearers’ webpage about the investigation, they heard about the findings from the Facebook post. The post has been shared over 60 times from the local Facebook group alone.\nJordyn Leigh | Facebook\nThough The Fur-Bearers' investigation is underway, their website states that it is "unclear on whether the Conservation Officer Service has formally begun an investigation."\nIt is beyond saddening to hear of these events, but it is inspiring to see how the community is banding together to uncover information.\nCountless animal cruelty claims have been made within the last year. From studies that reflect poorly on the Vancouver Zoo to dozens of dogs needing to be saved from neglectful situations, it's been tragedy after tragedy.\nAll that said, there are wonderful people like Jordyn all over the world that help bring injustices like this to light.\nThere are stories everywhere.
