Not OK

So here are some bears that were minding their own business (I'm guessing) when some guy (most likely) shot and killed them and now this one can be viewed at the Best Western in Kodiak.

And this one at the airport in Kenai.

This is not OK in my opinion. I am against all trophy hunting, I get upset and saddened by it.
I love animals and because I love animals I eat next to no animal meat, I do drink/eat milk products and eggs, I do wear animal products although I try to be increasingly aware on that point. So I'm not perfect. Giving up meat was not difficult, I very rarely crave it or miss it. Everybody can and should cut down on their meat intake, I think we are brain washed to believe meat should be on the menu daily.
What was the point to put these two beautiful bears in some glass monters? Bragging rights? What good do they do stuffed in a monter?
I don't get it. I will never have any kind of animals hanging on my walls or on my floors as decoration, unless it's a picture or painting. I know that animals have feelings. Who are we to kill and destroy everything on this planet? One day we will deeply regret these actions, just like this Native American (I think) tells it, "When the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river is polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize, too late, that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can’t eat money."
My new moose friend. I hope he will roam the forest and live unharmed. You want some moose antlers on your wall? Whatever. Do something useful with yourself instead of hunting for innocent animals.
