Your Say

BBC or Polar Bear? No contest. I was really disappointed that the bear went away hungry.

I must have missed it. Where did it say the bear wandered away hungry?

What would make a really nice story? Taking the bear to the home offices of the BBC and turning it loose. I'd pay a dollar to watch that.

Taking a wildlife shot or a wildlife s*it!

...and tourists in Yellowstone have put honey on their kids so the bears would lick them.

Unfortunately I can't post at the article's site (closed to new comments). The article had the bear weighing 1000 KG. 1,000 lbs. is more like it. Still a huge beast. Her cubs would have been disappointed with the insufficient amount of fat on the photographer. Perhaps Michael Moore could be persuaded to do a documentary on Polar Bears?

This is a topic which is near to my heart... Best wishes! Exactly where are your contact details though?
