Why, you'd kill it of course, and then you'd consider using various funny sounding names for it. Of course thinking of a specific name would be rather pointless since you had just finished killing off the only known example in the wild.

It was a proper hunting season, he had the proper permits, and it wasn't confirmed as a distinct hybrid until they did the DNA testing, something that can't happen in the field.

Besides if Polar Bears and Grizzlies are making woopie in the tundra.....I think we will see more.

Legal, yes. Ethical ? ..... well...... was it killed to provide food for someone? No. Was it a threat to anyone ? No. It was killed to provide a trophy for someone with a blank wall in his den.

I love polar bears and the fact that any bear hunting is legal I think is terrible. It's all trophy hunting and not for food consumption.

Incorrect.

It's all trophy hunting for the white man . . . native Alaskans and Canadians use every bit of that bear . . . and are the only people allowed to legally kill a polar bear.

I've eaten Bear, I don't care for it - tough stuff. Someone told me once I didn't get a good batch . . .

Unfortunately, this bear won't be around to watch so we can study how, perhaps, a Grizzly and a Polar bear made a baby Yogi . . .

What uses? Is this fur used for coats? I don't know what goes on up there and I am just curious. I just feel that the uses don't really seem like a necessity.

The northern Canadians and Indians will use just about every bit of meat possible off of it. The fur is used for clothing as well. Just about the only part that goes unused is the liver I believe because it is too potent in Vitamin B or something along those lines.

It is fatal for a human to eat polar bear liver, highly concentrated in vitamin D. The bear, being highest on the food chain, accumulates all vitamin D consumed by everything on the lower links of the chain.

Obviously the hide is tanned . . . and the meat is eaten. The oil/fat is used as a lubricant, and is even eaten sometimes. Some meats are used to feed other animals.

It's interesting NIK, no matter what is killed here, almost every tidbit is used for something. Parts, like the stomach, are cleaned, and dried and used as bags to hold "things".

While the "white man" - or in this case - great "American Big Game Hunter" - tends to waste quite a bit of what we shoot, even on a legal hunt where the meat will be taken - the native Alaskan/Canadian wouldn't never consider it.

I am not the biggest bear meat fan in the world, but black bear is alright, especially in sausage, but they can make any meat taste good in sausage.
My experience with brown bear has been a fall bear that was still gorging itself on salmon, but regardless if the guide and hunter are ethical at all the meat will be given to a local native village and consumed in some form or another.
Few things Ill point out and ask about...how big was it? It didnt say in the story. I also am presuming that it is being mislabeled as a part grizzly bear when it is more likely to be a brown bear. Grizzlies are generally smaller than a brown bear, not much, but smaller, they eat more smaller game animals, less fish etc. Whereas the brown bear which are more than plentiful in my neck of the woods are larger, often reaching over 9ft from nose to tail, eat fish predominatly in the summer. By this I mean they are gorging themselves on salmon all day long for 8weeks and eating nothing else.
Another thing Ill point out is that a white guy cant hunt polar bear in the US and Alaska included due to the marine mammal act. I am pretty sure there is a native subsistence hunt on the north slope in ANC country. He would be able to explain more. But in terms of trophy hunting for polar bears, illegal in AK. Got to head to Canada for that.

In answer to your original question, a very rare bear should be returned to the grill for further cooking, as there is considerable risk of trichinosis,otherwise.

A little further (wholly unsolicited) advice: The liver of a Polar bear is so rich in vitamin A as to be toxic to humans.

And finally, for those who prefer their bears wild and unmolested, be advised Polar bears will stalk, kill, and eat humans, and are a bit of a nuisance in places like Churchill, Canada.

For an enlightening glimpse of Polar bear behavior, I suggest watching one of the demonstrations folks up there stage. A bear-resistant cage-(something like a shark cage) is set out with a human inside.

It's quite instructive to watch the bears approach the cage, and try every trick they can think of to get at the human inside.They are patient and methodical: so much so, it is sometimes neccessary to rescue the human from the half dozen bears who are giving it their best shot.  Wow!  Wow!  Wow!
