The wildlife expert/hunting and trapping official on site thought the cub had probably been dead for a couple of weeks.
    How heartbreaking.

    As Linda7NJ said, How heartbreaking.
    Her maternal instinct was so strong.....how heartbreaking, then someone shot her.
    It is even more heartbreaking when you think that a lot of people pay to go on a Polar Bear Tour. People pay a lot of money to see a polar bear in its natural habitat.
    Otherwise the only other way to see one is in a Zoo.

    My Dad was an aerial surveyor and was in the Arctic. A village was having problems with a polar bear and my dead, being an animal lover, said he and his pilot would run the bear off with the helicopter. The found the polar bear and started "buzzing" it. The bear obligingly took off away from the village. However, the next time the helicopter tried to buzz him, he stood tall and swiped at the pontoons. He nearly brought down the helicopter and Dad found huge bear claws embedded in the pontoon. He brought the claws home for my brother and me.
    MOO

    I was really tempted to tick 'Antarctica' but I was able to resist the urge for the sake of Websleuths

    Hi there everyone.
    Im from a town called Bendigo in regional Victoria,(it's a beautiful place) Australia. I love Websleuths and would get on more often if time permitted (we are on a horse farm) my fave thread is the True Crime Movie and chatting back and forth with Stanreid and fellow movie buffs. I also try to keep up with the McStay Family news as that sort of stuff never makes the news here. Kate x

    ůman differs from the animal by the fact that he is a killer; he the only primate that kills and tortures members of his own species without any reason, either biological or economic, and who feels satisfaction in doing so.
