Out in the beautiful snowy forest of the Algonquin Park, in Ontario Canada, Rick Mercer takes on a new adventure, to tag Black bears with bear expert and Park Ranger, Dr. Martin Olbert. Rick Mercer is flown by helicopter over the cold, snowy white terrain and spy a downed moose carcase with a lone wolf not too far off. He is told that there are 35 wolf packs within this magnificent park.
Rick is amused by the fact that he will be venturing off in search of hibernating bears in order to tag them, but that the females do not sleep in order to feed their young. What they will use for protection from these mother bears will be a shovel! Dr. Olbert says the bears are not aggressive, in most cases….
What a wonderful job to have indeed! I would love this type of job. What a worthwhile way to spend time. I would do this in a heart beat. See what you think….
