A polar bear was shot and killed this weekend after attacking a cruise ship guard who was helping tourists during an island expedition, Norwegian authorities have confirmed.
The guard was assigned to protect tourists who had landed on Svalbard's northernmost island from the MS Bremen, which is operated by Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. "He is out of danger, with no threat to life", Hapag-Lloyd Crusises posted.
He explained that usually, if a wild bear is seen, guards "shoot into the air" to scare the animal away. The probe will include an examination of the polar bear. "We are extremely sorry that this incident has happened". In 2008 polar bears were listed for protection under the Endangered Species Act because of forecasted impacts of climate change. "When there's only 25,000 polar bears left on the planet, every one matters".
"Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has been traveling to these destinations for many years with an experienced crew", the statement concludes. If the opportunity presents itself, polar bears will also consume carcasses, such as those of dead whales.
"They had no right to get themselves into a situation where they needed to defend themselves", said one Twitter user.
