Canadas Inuit Roar In Protest To Protect The Polar Bear
The Los Angeles Times2012-07-08: IQALUIT, Canada — Doomsday predictions of the polar bear’s demise tend to draw an Inuit guffaw here in Nunavut, the remote Arctic territory where polar bears in some places outnumber people. People will tell you about the polar bear that strode brazenly past the dump a month ago or the bear that attacked a dog team in the town of Arviat in November. Heart-rending pictures of polar bears clinging to tiny islands of ice elicit nothing but derision. The move to protect polar bears is appreciated for one thing, however, and that’s a hefty hike in the price for a dead one.
