Polar bear to Japan?

The Japa­ne­se zoo Nihon­dai­ra has app­lied for a fema­le polar bear from Spits­ber­gen to be deli­ve­r­ed to Japan, for exhi­bi­ti­on tog­e­ther with a male bear that alrea­dy lives in the zoo, and to pro­du­ce off­spring.

The Sys­sel­man­nen in Lon­gyear­ben reac­ted reluc­tant­ly, say­ing a good rea­son could not be seen to catch a polar bear in Spits­ber­gen for deli­very to a Japa­ne­se zoo, and that the mat­ter is not rea­listic. Polar bears are com­ple­te­ly pro­tec­ted in Spits­ber­gen sin­ce 1973.
