Inside Nature’s Giants, a TV show on the United Kingdom’s public service broadcasting network, Channel 4, has become the focus of protests by several animal rights and welfare organizations. Channel 4 claims that their show gets “under the skin” of various wildlife species through dissection so that viewers can better understand these animals.

The latest episode, “The Polar Bear,” has sparked outrage among some viewers and demands for a boycott of the show from animal rights groups in response to a polar bear hunt. Despite the serious threats polar bears are facing due to climate change and hunting, this episode followed a group of Inuit hunters as they kill a polar bear and a group of scientists as they dissect and examine its body.

Like the episode’s description states, “As their habitat melts and their food becomes increasingly contaminated, the polar bears’ future looks precarious. Can they adapt fast enough to survive this rapidly changing world?” It’s difficult to understand why the killing of one of these threatened animals would be allowed for  a TV show, then! Animal Defenders International points out that previous episodes have included dissections of elephants, tigers, and other species, and have asked that viewers both boycott the show and contact Channel 4 to voice their concern.

Given the crisis polar bears face, how do you feel about this?
