I can't see this having a happy ending for the bear - or perhaps for Mr. Thorseth (or one of his crew).

That is just about the last thing I want on my boat.

Of course, these idiots don't seem to realize that polar bears are one of the few critters that consider human beings a prey animal....

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

After getting over the extreme lack of judgement...
this does take the concept of rail meat to a whole
other level!

Just remember to cook your polar bear thoroughly because polar bears are carriers for trichinosis. Many people have gotten trichinosis from undercooked or dried polar bear meat.

WOW!

I cannot believe they got away with that. So scary!

I would rather get between a moose and her calf than do what they did. They were so lucky!

And yes, bears are not afraid of us and we are one of their food sources!

My wife's childhood best friend and her husband live in Pond Inlet, on Baffin Island, where they teach high school. Apparently you don't go far outside alone up there without a high-powered rifle, because the polar bears think humans are a tasty snack.

They showed us detailed photos of what happened to the bear that took to hanging out by the school: bear skinning/eating party in the gym!

Will check when we see them next summer and make sure they remember the meat thermometer.
