After doing lots of research, (about 5 mins) i propose that we relocate polar bears to the antarctic. Plenty of food and plenty of ice. Job done.

That would kill off all the bears, I'm afraid:
Contrary to what most people think, the polar bear's eyes do NOT use ordinary optical signals to orient itself with.
Rather, the polar bear's eye is a magnificent example of a naturally occurring magnetic resonance imaging device, utilizing the local orientation of the magnetic field to hunt down the seals.

If you move the polar bear down to Antarctica, it will run AWAY from the penguin it wants to eat..

Polar bears can't eat penguins.

You're thinking of bipolar bears. What we really should do is send them to Mars where they can glean the asparagus farms.

Polar bears are in their natural habitat into which they evolved.

How about keeping stupid people from wandering into places they shouldn't be.

How can you say such a thing, Astronuc?
The only thing worth seeing at Svalbard is..the polar bears.
The island NEEDS stupid people to wander into places they don't belong, in order to maintain its economy..

What do you expect from 5 minutes research? would have solved the penguin population boom though.

By luring penguins to hang out here at PF, you'll get the same effect. :smile:

In Canada, people ride in buses or enclosed vehicles - i.e., people ride in cages to view animals that would otherwise kill them.

Why to people expect to impose themselves on other creatures?

I don't think wild animals should be inconvenienced for the sake of petty whims on the part of people.

Wild animals deserve to be left alone for their own sake - or observed at a distance. In the US National Parks, people are warned to keep a distance from bison, elk and bears. Now and then, some people ignore this restriction, get too close and get injured or killed. Then folks want to destroy the animal who caused harm to the stupid person who ignored the warning and common sense. It really irritates me that people do stupid things and expect to be free of consequences and responsibilities for their stupidity. :mad:

Agreed. High schools should not be allowed in major cities.

I read this at 5am this morning and with my sleep groggy mind, I believed it without question. :rofl:

That's what the librarian said to me.

This seems... unlikely...
