Polar Bear Hunters Pose With Kills and Encourage More to Take Part

In a world that is quickly dying because of climate change, (yes, it exists!), you would think that humans would try their best to preserve what they have. But I think that might be asking for too much.

Instead, it seems as if some people are happily aiding in the destruction of the planet by hunting animals that are already on the verge of extinction.

Polar bears are rapidly decreasing in numbers due to hunters killing them for their own amusement. I must warn you that this article will contain some gruesome photographs showing just how callous humans can be…

Trophy hunters are known for their cruel practices, murdering some of nature’s most amazing animals for their own personal gratitude.

Clearly, no animal is off-limits to these vile killers. From the hottest places in the world to the coldest, it seems as if trophy hunters will span the length of the planet in order to get what they want.

And they’re not even ashamed of the heinous crimes they have committed. Instead, it’s all a game to them, where the winner is congratulated for being the best killer. How disgusting.

A hunter named Ron Thomson has shamelessly claimed on his website that he has killed over 5,000 elephants, 800 lions, and sixty lions amongst many others. His gallery contains various disturbing shots taken over the past fifty years of him and others with the corpses of wild animals.

When questioned about his long list of “achievements”, he said that he had “no regrets” about any of them.

All we know, Thomson, is that you’ve killed thousands of nature’s finest animals and documented the process like it’s something to be proud of – and we’re really not here for it.

This horrible picture was posted to Facebook by a French couple, Jacques and Martine Alboud, who thought it would be a good idea to parade their “achievements” online.

After posting a series of photos showing them standing over the dead bodies of dead animals including a lion, a zebra, and a hippo, which they both killed during a safari, the couple was forced to retire their positions in the franchise.

The number of wild animals is rapidly decreasing, with lions, elephants and polar bears being the most widely affected.

But it seems as if trophy hunters are beyond caring about that. All they’re out here to do is kill and then shamelessly expose themselves on social media as if it’s something to be proud of.

Recently, experts claim that the number of polar bears being hunted on organized trips in Canada which can cost up to 44,000 dollars has drastically increased.

The issue has become extremely serious. In the past few years, over 5,000 polar bears have been killed for “fun”.

Since the United States made it illegal to hunt polar bears in every state except for Alaska, people have been traveling to Canada, where it is still legal to engage in such violent activities.

Eduardo Gonçalves, from the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, has spoken against this, saying “the ­Government should ban im­­­ports of all hunting trophies right away.” Illegal trophy imports have been a motivation for this kind of activity, as the market for polar bears seems to be popular amongst traders.

All this killing for a new rug? Disgusting.

Twitter users took to the platform to express their disgust towards people that engage in such violent activity.

We quite agree.

We don’t have any sympathy for killers, either.

“As well as dwindling food resources because of shrinking sea ice, they face threats from oil and gas drilling, toxic waste pollution, new diseases as a result of global warming, and busier shipping lanes.”

The last thing polar bears need is for trophy hunters to go around shooting them for fun just so they can pose for a selfie with the corpse. What kind of achievement is that, anyway? Let’s hope the world can gain some sense before it’s too late.
