In a shadowy interrogation room, a homicide file lies open in front of two frustrated cops. Behind a one-way mirror sits their main suspect, a hulking black bear named Canuck Black. Highly intelligent and eloquent, Canuck is a tormented creature. Raised as a human, he wrestles with his competing instincts, both human and animal. Interrogated by the cops who, without proof, are certain of his guilt, Canuck questions their prejudice and cooperates on his own terms. Is he telling the truth or leading them astray? A murder mystery with an eloquent and engaging protagonist, CANUCK BLACK questions animal liberation and how we determine our identity.
