Polar Bear theives exposed

Remember the photo of the polar bears "stranded" on the ice berg?

Thanks to my hubby, it's been revealed that this photo was NOT taken by environmentalists but used for their own devious plot to make the world believe that these bears were in fact stranded and in mortal danger. Not only did they falsely scare us into believing such things as these bears were stranded as stated in this paragraph:

‘They cling precariously to the top of what is left of the ice floe, their fragile grip the perfect symbol of the tragedy of global warming. Captured on film by Canadian environmentalists, the pair of polar bears look stranded on chunks of broken ice….’

It also appears that they used the photo without the permission of the ACTUAL photographer named Amanda Byrd:

'The student who took the photograph, however, gives a slightly different account: ‘They were on the ice when we found them and on the ice when we left. They were healthy, fat and seemed comfortable on their iceberg.’

'Amanda Byrd, an Australian graduate student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), says she took the picture around three years ago - in the summer. The photograph was not ‘taken by environmentalists’ but as part of a field trip with the university.'

It really is amazing the lengths that the media, the activists, and the loons will go to get the majority to believe in what their cause is. Criminal at times too.

I would like to thank Amanda Byrd for a great photo and give her the credit that she deserves for taking a photo that was used under false pretenses.
