To the Editor:

Re "Debate on Global Warming Has Polar Bear Hunting in Its Sights" (front page, May 27):

Nature creates the magnificent polar bear, and the response of the man featured in your article was to kill one simply because it is there.

There was no urgency on the man's part for food or warmth to keep himself alive. Just blood lust—and that is morally repugnant.
