Big congratulations go out to Idaho big game hunter Jim Martell, who paid a Canadian hunting outfitter $45K to kill a polar bear. Instead, he shot and killed the only documented wild example of a grizzly and polar bear hybrid. Originally confiscated by Canadian officials, it’s now being returned to its “rightful” owner – the brave hunter, of course! He, with his buddies, slayed the beast from hundreds of yards away with his long-range rifle. See how brave he is, ladies and gentlemen? How could he look into the very face of danger (through 70x binoculars) and stare it down like that? Amazing!
Understandably, Martell is quite proud of his accomplishment! While already on location in his next hunt, he joked that he’ll dub his catch the polargrizz. “It’ll be quite a trophy!” he quipped.
Alright. Turning off the sarcastic 1940’s newsreel voice.
Killing for food, or culling a population out of control… I’m all for it. It needs to be done to humanely remove animals from areas where they’re starving or being hit by cars. And it’s widely known that Native Americans used every part of the buffalo they killed – and thanked their Gods for providing it, to boot! I’m not some softie – I eat lots of meat. I just trust it’s prepared for me in the most humane way it can be. Some will surely think this hypocritical.
But Martell is an example of human scum – somebody with a spot on their den wall that can only be filled with a pathetic proof of their manhood. And the short-sighted glee that this ass derives from killing the only one… well, that just proves my point.
You’re a cowardly ass, Jim Martell. I look forward to reading about you again – after you’ve been mauled to death by an elephant on your next “great adventure”.
