Black Bear Meat- A Healthy, Natural Dog Food.
Black Bears are abundant in the province of BC, but for most hunters the meat isn’t something they are interested in eating, and quite frankly I don’t really have a taste for bear meat either. Having been in on a recent black bear hunt my friend was not interested in processing the meat, so he gave it to me under the premise I would use it to make a natural and healthy food for my dog.
Bear Meat is safe for humans when cooked to specific temperatures, so I really couldn’t see any reason that it wouldn’t be fit for my dog, when cooked properly.
I hit up Google and started looking for some basic dog food recipes, and what
to include for veggies and the like:
- Bear Meat
- Mixed Grain Rice
- Sweet Potatoes
It seemed to be widely suggested that you mix your meat and veggies in a 4:1 ratio. 4 Parts meat, to 1 part veggies.
The process was pretty simple as goes as follows.
6. Once meat is cooked, stir in veggies and rice. Let cool.
Your average back bear should easily provide 200+ lbs of natural, healthy dog food that your pet will love. Your only problem is going to be finding freezer space!
