B.C. conservation officers are being buried in bear calls in Greater Victoria.
Conservation officer Scott Norris says they've received more than 330 bear-related complaints in the last three months, almost as many as for all of last year.
Norris says they're keeping their eye out for a number of bears that have showed aggression because people are leaving their garbage out for the bears to dig through.
Two black bears were put down on Friday, one was shot in Central Saanich, the other in Sooke
