A couple of pot growers near Christina Lake, British Columbia made friends with the area's black bears. When the cops raided the farm, they encountered a dozen laid-back black bears. From the Vancouver Sun:

Said Smith: “We saw no evidence they were consuming the plants.”
In addition to drug charges, the couple may face charges of feeding wildlife, said Webster. But he doubted the bears were being encouraged to help guard the pot farm. He thought it was more likely “misguided good intent,” adding it wasn’t the first time conservation officers had been called out to the property because the residents were feeding bears.
What becomes of the bears depends on whether they easily return to their natural habitat and food sources, Webster said.
