Just a little off the sides please; black bear ruins Alberta barber's day

Just a little off the sides please; black bear ruins Alberta barber's day SLAVE LAKE, Alta. — A northern Alberta barbershop owner is assessing the damage after an encounter with a wild customer that wasn't looking for a trim and a hot shave. Sam Assaf had left the front door open Wednesday to let fresh air into his three week-old Slave Lake, Alta., business — called the LionsDen Barbershop. He was standing outside when he spotted the bear and started taking pictures, but suddenly remembered the situation with the door. Assaf says the bruin strolled in and proceeded to leave a big mess that included ruining his work station and defecating, although some expensive clippers were spared.

VICTORIA — Feeding a Timbit and hot dogs to a bear has resulted in a $2,000 fine in British Columbia.

The province's conservation officer service says the man was also ordered to keep a distance of at least 50 metres from bears for six months by a provincial court judge on Aug. 22.

The service says in a tweet the man, whose name was not released, pleaded guilty to a charge of unlawfully feeding bears.

The man posted a photo on social media of himself feeding the Tim Hortons treat to the bear from a vehicle on the side of the Alaska Highway.

Last October, the service says the bear appeared to be a young grizzly.

At the time, the service said a woman was also charged but it made no mention of that case in its tweet.
