I’m sorry to share such a distressing picture today. But this sad event could have been avoided.
A German cruise line — Hapag-Lloyd Cruises — was responsible for killing this polar bear. How did this happen? The cruise line takes tourists to an island in Norway where there are so many bears that “Polar bear guards” are required by law to search the area before tourists come ashore. During one of these searches, this polar bear attacked a guard and was shot dead.
