Well, here I can give a little inside info, finally I come to some use on this forum :-)

I've been following this in the Icelandic media online.

The first bear was shoot by a local policeman because the bear was heading for some local farms - but it is generally recognized that the killing was a big mistake. The whole Icelandic media went in big 'who to blame mode' after the killing took place - and the reaction of the Icelandic people was much the same way as the writing we see in this thread.

- 'bear' in mind that these are the first bears to set foot on Icelandic ground since back in 1988 and before that we have to go back to the 60's - so this is not something that happens every winter/summer so there are no procedures to follow.

So when the second bear was found 'they' planned to do the 'right' thing.
A cage was flown to Iceland from a Danish ZOO and one of Iceland's riches guys said he would pay for the whole 'operation'.
- I actually don't know why the second bear was shoot, but both bears were sick, extremely thin and badly infested with muscle reducing parasite (common in the arctic) Second bear was also wounded on both front legs and had lost a lot of blood.

So! Let's not judge a whole nation by these two incidents.
We tend to be rather friendly people and not blood thirsty Vikings, hehe! :-)

I guess the next polar bear that shows its face in Iceland will get the deluxe treatment back to the arctic ...or some nice friendly caged ZOO :-(((

I'll keep you up to date.

Icelandic greetings from the UK,
ingi
