Illegal Canadian pot farmers have been trying a new tactic to prevent theft of their crop.
They placed dog food out to convince local bears to stay in the area in order to scare off any hikers.
When police came to investigate a pot farm, they found at least 14 bears hanging out on the property.
The bears were not aggressive and the raid proceeded with caution.
According to police, the pot farmers usually employ dogs as guards and the bears probably will have to be destroyed as they are now attracted to humans for the easy food source.
