Just saw this on RSOE and i have to say a little bit of my heart broke. It's bad enough seeing the pictures of the stranded bears clinging to small pieces of ice but knowing that these polar bears did actually drown.. yeah a bit of my soul just died.... it doesnt seem that any forensic tests have been carried put yet so lets hope that is done asap. link below to the RSOE page and also to the Friends of Colonsay Facebook page, where there are photos of the bears. hisz.rsoe.hu... m.facebook.com...

The Facebook link says that the Marine Strandings Unit says that the carcasses are definitely NOT polar bears.
I think more needs to be investigated here.

Why are you less upset now you know it was a creature other than a polar bear which died?
Are polar bears particularly special to you or something?

Comments in the Facebook link provided in OP say some witness described fur and 'hooves', maybe they were sheep?

Lab test?

Sounds like a 'blobster'. After a marine mammal like a whale or dolphin decomposes for a while, the connective tissues in the blubber look a lot like fur or hair.

News like this tells a heartbreaking story that no one wants to hear.
But I believe this to be a strong indicator people should pay attention
to.

What's so heartbreaking?
Marine mammals die all the time.

You do know that polar bears swim in open ocean to hunt for +100 miles ?

Fur looks a lot like fur too. With "Hooves"?

in the context of Al Gore's claims that polar bears were losing their homes due to ice melting, it does matter a lot. The fact that some animal dies is sad, but if it's just a natural thing, or an accident that couldn't have been avoided, it's nothing we need to attribute to the AGW discussion. (IMHO)

Hooves eh?
Clearly a non story now then as people are apparently only 'heartbroken' over the deaths of big ol' cuddly polar bears.
Even the OP appears to have bailed now the creatures are not his/her favoured species.

Oh Lord don't bring up Al Gore. He was wrong on every single prediction he ever made. Didn't stop him from making millions off of it though.

Oh I get that, just making an observation how people are emotionally attached to some species more than others...In this case polar bears, OP is happier now it turns out some other creature has died, seems a bit strange to me but hey.
I call it the Bambi effect.

Tonydavidson get a grip. If they're not Polar bears then it stands to reason they're probably some sea faring animal such as a whale which may end up washed up on a beach at the end of it's natural life. So no, nothing upsetting about that.

Get a grip of what?
You being heartbroken for cuddly ol' polar bears then feeling much better on discovering it was some other creature that died?
yeah, I think such emotional discrimination depending on species is silly, but if you grieve for bears ore than whales or whatever that is your emotional choice of course.

got it. I was thinking it was linked to the outrage over the picture of polar bears "clinging to life" on a small iceberg. (which was so out of context it's frightening.)

Yeah, those poor cuddly Polar Bears ....... the only known animal to actively HUNT humans if they get the scent, how about poor cows .......... wait!! ...... they are just steak right?



ETA: This was after the recent NZ earthquake and they have been rescued since
