Allen Piche

The man accused of feeding bears in Christina Lake during the summer pleaded guilty on Tuesday.

Allen Piche was charged for feeding dangerous wildlife, under the Wildlife Act, stemming from an incident involving a search of his property last summer which found 26 docile bears. The bears are currently in hibernation.

Sentencing will take place sometime between Nov. 21 and Dec. 14, as the fate of the bears will likely be taken into account.

Piche will also be appearing in court on Dec. 13 for a trial confirmation on federal charges. That trial is set for Feb. 13 and 14, 2012.
