CANADA-Polar Bears in Canada are being illegally offered to foreign sport hunters who pay up to $40,000 for the 'hunt of a lifetime'. Legal hunting of the bears is authorised to indigenous Canadians who are allowed to purchase licences to kill an annual quota of polar bears for their meat and skins. Licences are often illegally on-sold to sport hunters. WSPA believes that the killing of polar bears for sport should be banned as we are absolutely opposed to taking and killing wild animals for purposes not essential to humans or the welfare of the animals. "Against this sort of hunter, these bears stand no chance," said Victor Watkins, WSPA Wildlife Director. "Most end up riddled with shots and die slow painful deaths."
