Pigs and Polar Bears

Towleroad.com reports on the horrible story of a polar bear, climate change and some police (oink oink). Who's seen Sir David Attenborough's Planet Earth and the heartbreaking footage of a polar bear swimming, and swimming, and swimming in search of ice, before finally giving up? This is worse:

"A Polar Bear that swam 200 miles from either Greenland or a 'distant chunk of Arctic ice' finally reached land in Iceland, where it was shot by a group of police, They said they were afraid it posed a threat to humans but couldn't wait 24 hours for a "correct tranquilizer" to be flown in.

Actually: "Sveinbjarnardottir's account was disputed by the chief vet in the town of Blönduó, Egill Steingrímsson, who said he had the drugs necessary to immobilise the bear in the boot of his car. 'If the narcotics gun would have been sent by plane, it would have arrived within an hour,' he said. 'They could keep tabs on the bear for that long.'

And then the pigs posed smugly behind it like some kind of trophy — a starving, exhausted, (not to mention endangered) animal whose life had just ended by their rifles."

And to think the government expect us the working public do pay and support and adopt to protect these innocent creatures, when people like these (pigs) can't control their caveman-like instincts to actually destroy the population. It will only get worse I'm sure
