I found this posted on another board and wanted to share it here because this is MADDENING!!!
According to the Daily Mail, one Chinese company called the 'I Love Hunting Club' is drawing criticism for selling travel packages to adventure-seeking tourists offering the chance to kill polar bears in Canada. Reports indicate that nearly a hundred people, mostly Chinese businessmen, have shelled out $80,000 for the trip which includes: airfare, accommodations, foreign hunting permits, tracking guides to help find a bear, a bow and arrow or rifle to kill it with, taxidermy services to mount the animal or to make it into a rug, and finally a souvenir DVD documenting the entire sickening affair.
One can only wonder how aware the public was of this policy which allows for the imperiled species to be hunted for $80,000 -- particularly considering a recent survey which revealed that Canadians were willing to pay $420,000 per polar bear to save them.
