Skip to comments.Arctic expedition to highlight global warming brings guns to fight off polar bears

In an effort to highlight the effects of global warming, an Irish-Canadian team plans to cross the arctics Northwest Passage in a rowboat while armed with rubber bullets to ward off polar bears.
The team will also carry shotguns to kill the animals if necessary.
They are the only animal out there that will actively hunt down a human being, said seasoned adventurer Kevin Vallely, who is part of the rowing expedition which will take about 80 days and traverse the distance between Inuvik in Canadas Northwest Territories and Pond Inlet, Nunavut.

But what about the whales? Do they have a plan in case they come to face to face with one?? I would suggest taking off and nuking it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
“They might have to kill them to prove the reason to save them....”
Bringing a shotgun to kill a bear? That’s like throwing bricks into the Grand Canyon.
They might find the The Franklin Expedition: 1845-1859
But...but...I thought the polar bears were “endangered” and the melting ice...and...and..the lack of food...and..and...
Bunch of friggin’ morons.
Not with proper ammo. If they're carrying a 12 gauge loaded with slugs, they're well armed against the threat of a polar bear.
Apparently, Kevin has never heard of lions or tigers. "Seasoned" my eye...
“The team will also carry shotguns to kill the animals if necessary.”
Probably with bird shot! Perhaps with rifled slugs they might have a chance but nonetheless for anything I would encounter out in the Polar region, I want nothing less than a 375HandH.
Rubber bullets? LOL...that will just piss them off...
Seasoned as in “pass the Tony Chachere’s and some of that McIlhenney’s Tobasco too.” I believe that wolves will actively track your butt down and eat you too. Sounds like these asshats were edumacated in Dumbassistan.
Or “How To Piss Off a Polar Bear In One Easy Lesson”. Gives a whole new meaning to the term “Manwhich”. LOL!

He needs to read some of Capstick’s books. DEATH IN THE LONG GRASS, MANEATERS.
Along with MANEATERS OF TSAVO and MAN EATERS OF KUMAON.
Um Kevin, what about grizzly bears (ask Timothy Treadwell. Oh, nevermind, he and his girlfriend are bear scat now.
What about wolves? There was an interesting incident just a week or so ago in Banff National Park where a wolf tried catching a motorcyclist.
Even black bears have been known to hunt humans.
Mr. Vallely, your “adventures” evidently don’t include much in the way of wild predators.
Gaia protect you, because I get the impression you’re a member of the church of algore.
A rowboat ?
Shotgun seems to be a pretty short range weapon to TRY to kill a freight train coming at you at 25 mph. And the bear CAN run in snow...
And, they have no problem swimming in open water (from the pictures with the ice flows photo shopped out) and even diving down a little bit too. Be a pity if they were to turn the row boat over and dump their yummy dinner in the sub-tropical waters of the arctic ocean. Why it’s almost like a tropical vacation. LOL!
Exactly! Think Mongo on Blazing Saddles.
I wonder if these are the same ass clowns that sank the old Russian derelict cruise ship (MS Explorer) in Antarctica in 2007 causing a massive diesel and oil spill?
