Hide for Sale
Bill Burger, left and Joe Burger hold up a brown-bear hide to be auctioned at
the Alaska State Fish and Game horn and hide auction Sunday at Anchorage's Fur
Rendezvous. The antlers and hides being auctioned are from animals that were
poached, killed in defense of life or property, killed accidentally or shot
because they had become a nuisance. The auction is the only place in the United
States where a person can legally buy a bear hide. It draws buyers from around
the world. The auction is held during the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous winter festival.
The money raised from the sale will go back into the agency's operating budget.
