People are spending a lot of money at Alaskan Hunting Safaris By Rick Herscher to hunt polar bears for trophies. Polar bears are not an endangered species, and it is not illegal to hunt them, but they are being threatened. These beautiful creatures of the north are disappearing mainly because of global warming, but also because of the impact humans are having on them.
Polar bear hunting is a legal running sport throughout northern Canada and Alaska. People pay lots of money to go out on guided trips for hunting. Seven people usually go out and most come back with trophies. Thankfully there are limited amounts of permits for polar bear hunting.
