Polar Bear Attack in N.Y.

May 28, 1987

I would recommend that the New York Police Department review its shooting policy. A bear behind cages and bars is certainly not life-threatening provided he is not encroached upon. Shooting bears with 12-gauge shotgun blasts is cruel and inhumane. Besides, what was the rush? The bears weren't permitted to leave "the scene of the crime."
