(CNN)A person in an Alaska village has been charged with federal crimes for allegedly killing a polar bear and leaving it to rot for 5 months.

Christopher Gordon of Kaktovik is accused of violating the Marine Mammal Safety Act after he allegedly shot and killed a polar bear round December 20, 2018.


Katkovik, with about 250 residents, is a few 640 miles north of Anchorage.

Officers say Gordon improperly saved whale meat in his entrance yard, which attracted the polar bear. Gordon allegedly shot and killed the polar bear for making an attempt to eat the whale meat, to not defend himself or another person.

Investigators say the carcass sat in Gordon’s yard from late December till Might, when a snow removing automobile hit the bear’s physique and tore off certainly one of its legs.

The humorous factor is that he wouldn’t have damaged the regulation if he ate the bear.

Katkovik is within the “no drill” zone…

So… The “local weather wrecking” business had nothing to do with the demise of this explicit polar bear.

Kaktovik has apparently turn out to be a vacationer attraction as a result of polar bears are ignoring the local weather fashions. As a substitute of drowning for wildlife photographers, they simply transfer onto land when the ocean ice melts.

Kaktovik is a small Inupiaq village on the northern coast of Barter Island within the Arctic Nationwide Wildlife Refuge. Final yr, the Related Press reported that the village was seeing a tourism growth as polar bears have been spending extra time on land than on diminishing sea ice.

Even funnier factor… Christopher Gordon is a Democrat. Whereas I can’t be 100% sure he doesn’t work within the oil & fuel business (no LinkedIn web page), he lives within the Alaska Nationwide Wildlife Refuge, votes Democrat and apparently likes to eat whale meat… The once more, possibly he’s a Cajun. (Word: I can’t inform you after I’m being sarcastic.)

Now that we’ve solved the case of the Kaktovik polar bear, let’s get to the “meat” of Dr. Jacobson’s Twit Tweet…

In the meantime, oil, fuel, and coal firms are killing lots of the 22,000 remaining polar bears by melting the ice and destroying habitat, but get away with it.

First tally of U.S.-Russia polar bears finds a wholesome inhabitants

Not all polar bears are in the identical dire state of affairs because of retreating sea ice, at the least not proper now. Off the western coast of Alaska, the Chukchi Sea is wealthy in marine life, however the variety of polar bears within the space had by no means been counted. The primary formal research of this inhabitants means that it’s been wholesome and comparatively plentiful in recent times, numbering about three,000 animals.

The research by researchers on the College of Washington and federal companies is revealed Nov. 14 in Scientific Reviews, an open-access journal from the Nature Publishing Group.

“This work represents a decade of analysis that offers us a primary estimate of the abundance and standing of the Chukchi Sea subpopulation,” mentioned first writer Eric Regehr, a researcher with the UW’s Polar Science Heart who began the venture as a biologist in Alaska with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “Regardless of having about one month much less time on most popular sea ice habitats to hunt in contrast with 25 years in the past, we discovered that the Chukchi Sea subpopulation was doing effectively from 2008 to 2016.


Of the world’s 19 subpopulations of polar bears, the U.S. shares two with neighboring nations. The opposite U.S. subpopulation — the southern Beaufort Sea polar bears, whose territory overlaps with Canada — is displaying indicators of stress.

“The southern Beaufort Sea subpopulation is well-studied, and a rising physique of proof suggests it’s doing poorly because of sea-ice loss,” Regehr mentioned.


Latest ecological observations had advised that Chukchi Sea bears are doing effectively. A research led by co-author Karyn Rode, on the U.S. Geological Survey, confirmed the highest predators have comparable quantities of physique fats as 25 years in the past, an excellent indicator of their general well being.

The present research is the primary evaluation of the subpopulation measurement utilizing fashionable strategies. It estimates just below three,000 animals, with usually good reproductive charges and cub survival.


For the primary time, the mannequin additionally thought-about native and conventional ecological knowledgecollected by the North Slope Borough of Alaska from Native hunters and group members who’ve generations of expertise with polar bears.

“It was vital to carry our science along with the observations and experience of people that dwell in polar bear nation year-round and perceive the animals in several methods,” Regehr mentioned.

If the lack of sea ice because of international warming is stressing out the Beaufort Sea polar bears, why are they doing so effectively within the Chukchi Sea?

The Chukchi Sea is extra ice-free than the Beaufort Sea…


The “core research space” was the between Lisburne and Seward Peninsulas…

“The striped space on the left exhibits the Chukchi Sea polar bear subpopulation’s vary. Sea ice reaches south to the dotted line in winter, and retreats to the strong black line in summer season. The suitable exhibits a closeup of the research space off Alaska’s coast. White circles present the place polar bears have been tagged between 2008 and 2016.Regehr et al./Scientific Reviews” (UW)

The “core research space” has been particularly hard-hit by sea ice loss…

Setting apart the truth that general polar bear populations don’t appear to be declining, he’s obtained us red-handed…

Humble Oil was based in Humble, Texas in 1911. In 1919, Commonplace Oil of New Jersey acquired a 50% stake in Humble Oil. They acquired the opposite 50% in 1959. Ultimately the entire associates have been merged int Exxon Company in 1973 and in the end merged with Mobil Oil Company, a descendant of Commonplace Oil Firm of New York, in 1999 to turn out to be ExxonMobil (Texas State Historic Affiliation).
