The starving polar bear shookthe photographer

Canadian professional photographer and biologist Paul Niklen was
literally shocked when he saw starving to the limit
a polar bear on Baffin Island, where he arrived as part of
crew of Sea Legacy. Picture really
heartbreaking.

During his creative life, Paul took a photo — and a video camera during
the time of numerous travels of more than three thousand bears, but
he had never seen such a thing. Here’s how to convey your feelings.
scientist:

We stood, looked at this starving polar bear
and literally … wept. Tears of pity and some despair flowed from
eyebrows involuntarily, while we filmed it all. Bear still
clung to life, however it was no longer an animal, but a walking one
a skeleton on which instead of a thick fur coat hung some kind of pathetic
leather shell in tatters …

Watch the video that Niklen later published on
Internet video hosting. Notice how thin this one is.
poor bear, because it is even scary to watch. He clearly does not have
already no strength to move. However, he continues to fight
for a life. In the hope of at least some food, he looks into the trash
the tank, which was abandoned by the fishermen, but also doesn’t find anything there, and therefore
just falls to the ground, apparently already resigned to the inevitable
by death.

We could not help him, Paul explains, we didn’t have
neither meat products nor even tranquilizers to put to sleep
unhappy animal. But even if we had food
stocks, it would not have saved the bear, but only prolonged its suffering.
Moreover, according to the laws of Canada, we did not have the right to feed the wild
animals. I recorded these terrible last moments from the life of the polar
bear only so that people think a little about
what they turn nature into, what kind of suffering they doom
wild animals with their rash, and sometimes just criminal
activities.

Environmental problems due to global warming in which
largely guilty man with his ill-considered activities,
lead here to this, and even more terrible consequences. what
concerns polar bears, they are the first to feel the growth
water temperatures and sea level rise remaining in summer
practically no food. It is not by chance that environmentalists predict that all this
may lead to the complete disappearance of the polar bear as a species.

Unfortunately, such shots excite only ordinary people, from
which little depends. For the sake of money, the mighty of this world go and not
such crimes against nature, and environmentalists in this case
shut up in a rag. For example, do not even go far:
Today the forests of Ukraine are being barbarously destroyed by the largest
companies of EU countries, and therefore, just like this white
bear, thousands of other animals die, not to mention other
the consequences of such illegal logging.
