When you put carp in a pool, where a bear happens to swim, you can hardly be surprised when...


..the carp get eaten.

I claim copyright on any jokes involving carping about the facts...

I blame by kwsNI (2.00 / 0) #1 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 03:59:06 AM EST
the humans that hand reared him.  It's obvious they created a cruel, sadistic bear that should be put down for daring to play with the fish instead of eating it like a naturally raised predator would. 

$20 says the guy who expressed outrage at the "murder" of those poor fish has eaten fish in the last month.

As if this isn't exactly what a polar bear would do in the wild when it's young, learning how to fish. If they're so worried about the "senseless killing of the fish", just don't feed the bear for a week, see if his wasteful attitude doesn't change.

It's always hilarious to me when people get angry with animals for human traits we project onto them.

...replace the carp with trout or salmon. They taste better.

Urgh, yes, muddy pond carp by Rogerborg (2.00 / 0) #10 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 06:36:21 AM EST
Maybe the bear would have eaten them if they'd provided some lemon grass, perhaps some sliced ginger, just like in the wild.

Just like in the wild by Herring (4.00 / 3) #12 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 06:42:06 AM EST
They should throw a couple of live penguins in just to see what happens. The video it so you can carry around on a portable device, ready to show to any smart-arses.

Wrong poll by wiredog (3.00 / 1) #14 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 06:45:24 AM EST
Polar bears are arctic, penguins antarctic.

Seals,OTOH...

Sigh by Herring (4.00 / 3) #15 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 06:56:57 AM EST
That was kind of the point. The variations on twat answers are either:
a) The poles thing (although a lot of penguins live places like south america, the galapagos)
b) "Because they can't get the wrappers off". This is supposed to be amusing because Penguin was/is the name of an individually wrapper chocolate biscuit thing sold in the UK.

To turn round and say, "Actually, they do" and show them video of a polar bear eating a penguin would be more amusing.

Or, if it turns out that there is some undiscovered reason why they don't then the footage should reveal it.

Polar bears hate eating things that fly.

WTF? by nightflameblue (2.00 / 0) #5 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 05:11:51 AM EST
Because bears should just be big, cuddly, soft, warm, fuzzies and we should be able to put our children in with them and expect them to do nothing more than hug them and kiss them.

Fuck humanity. We've become so stupid that we're "SHOCKED" and "OUTRAGED" that a bear would dare kill a fish.

it's because they're germans by gzt (4.00 / 1) #6 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 05:21:34 AM EST
maybe because they're european, but i'm blaming it on being german.

Because we in America are so much better. by nightflameblue (4.00 / 1) #7 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 05:54:40 AM EST
Ever had a discussion about wildlife killing and eating each other with a certified PETA member? There's enough to convince you we need to wipe the slate clean and start over. Like, scorched earth, all the way around, wipe it clean.

well, yeah... by gzt (2.00 / 0) #8 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 06:20:28 AM EST
...but the context and manner is echt German.

Not really by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #9 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 06:25:01 AM EST
But I have had a discussion with a bunny hugging vegetarian before, and their defence was "wild animals know no better, whereas we have the ability to avoid eating meat".

What sort of stuff do PETA folks come up with?

They just simply disbelieve it. by nightflameblue (2.00 / 0) #13 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 06:43:17 AM EST
Like, if they think it hard enough, it'll come to pass that bunnies and bears will share wild berries and carrot patches, hugging and running together, frollicking forevermore in a world free of hunting, pain, and suffering.

PETA is the weirdest cult of all time. At least with the crazy cults I can understand the motivation on some level. There's some reason some guy goes nuts and says, "I should be able to seXX0rz every woman in the compound." I don't understand how someone reaches the conclusion that all animals are perfect creatures that are only held back by man's inability to accept their perfection.

The eating fish thing by Herring (4.00 / 1) #11 Tue Apr 08, 2008 at 06:36:22 AM EST
Ever heard of fish sausage? Of course they don't understand eating fish.

Did Murdoch manage to buy the BBC? It sure sounds like it.
