“Polar bear lovers unite”

Theremust be a rampant sickness that pervades some “people” that claim the “right” to wipe out any creature for the fun of it. I am not speaking OF THOSE THAT MUST HUNT TO SURVIVE.

The group that epitomizes this way of thinking is the  Safari Club International. Itis the largest international group of those unenlightened souls that kill endangered or threatened species for the “sport” of it.

Where is the sport when the hunter is the only one with a gun?

Those that have claimed allegiance to the flag of murder for the fun of it include past presidents George W. Bush and George H. W. Bush, Idaho Governor Butch Otter, and Norman Schwarzkopf as lifetime members. It donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to Republican candidates. It was a close ally of Sarah Palin in her war on Alaska’s wolves.

The Safari Club has filed two lawsuits to strip federal protection from the polar bear:

  • The first seeks to allow importation of polar bear heads and hides into the United States even though the species was listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 2008.
  • The second seeks to remove the polar bear from the threatened list altogether.

Why? Because at $40,000 a kill, polar bear hunting is big business — and heavily promoted. Every year the Safari Club gives out a “Grand Slam” award to anyone who kills at least five great-bear species, including the polar bear. It is even accepting “Record Book” entries to encourage its members to kill the largest bears possible.

The Center for Biological Diversity has formally intervened in the Safari Club’s lawsuits in defense of the polar bear, but your help is vitally needed  to win both crucial legal battles. Please donate today to our Polar Bear Legal Defense Fund.
