so, this scottish camera man follows a mother bear and her cub, who she then abandens, then theyget involved and get the back together, that id say is "ok" BUT the fact they got so close to them, its not right, then the mother abandens her cub again, so they are looking after the cub WHILST its still in the wild,
personaly i dont think thats right, its a wild animal and people fear and hunt them, he is makieng the cub use to humans which is something you really shouldnt do with a wild animal, they become use to humans and leave their habitat to ours and get seen as a  threat and are shot, or get killed in a hunt (by humans) and nursing this cub, how is it ment to fend for itself? how can it fight against predators? its wrong.

just like in the summer here, a fox  got into a house and attacked the babies. this is gonna sound really cold hearted but it wasnt the foxes fault, it was out fault for makeing foxes so use to us by feeding them. to them we are their food source now, and once that happens things like this happen,

we need to leave nature alone and allow them to fear us as we fear them and we shall be fine.

not everything is happy hippie land

so what do we think about this? shall we leave nature alone?

Sometimes it should be left alone, other time intervention is needed. In the UK (where we don't actually have bears any more) there is no wilderness any more - every single part of this island has been influenced and shaped by humans. The natural dynamics that occur in true areas of wilderness can't happen any more, due to fragmentation of habitats, absence of key species (large predators, beavers etc) so to maintain natural processes human intervention is required.

It's a sad fact but without management semi-natural habitat in the UK would decline.

Not quite what you asked, but sort of relevant.

====================

its fine, the point of this is to have a conversation of what we all think,

and yes, i agree, its annoying how we think were better than animals because we can destroy their habitats, were the worsts, not all of us, but many.....we need to think about our neighbours before ourselves
