Polar bear attacks are extremely rare.
According to the The Wildlife Society from 1869-2014 there have only been 74 polar bear attacks and a majority of the attacks came from captive polar bears.
As The Gateway Pundit reported back in 2011.
After Democrats passed their junk scienceCap and Trade legislation in June 2009 a report was released, and suppressed, that showed that polar bear numbers, far from decreasing, were much higher than they were 30 years ago.
In fact, it’s about time for a cull.
Polar bear numbers in Canada have increased in 11 of 13 regions in recent years.
Polar bear encounters on the North Slope oil fields have risen to record levels the last two years (as of 2011).
There are 5 times as many polar bears today as there were 50 years ago:
In December 2010 the Obama Administration admitted that polar bears are not endangered but are a “threatened” species due to non-existent
global warming climate change.
Despite the fact that the bear populations are booming, the Obama administration set aside 187,000 square miles in Alaska as a “critical habitat” for polar bears recently. The action that could restrict future drilling for oil and gas development.
Now, to top it all off, we find out the scientists who first reported on drowned polar bears is under investigation and likely fabricated the story.
As TGP originally reported back in 2011 –It’s about time for a cull, wouldn’t you say?
