Love Hurts: Feed Your 'Ex' to a Bear at Wildlife Images

$20 will buy you a fish to be named after your past or present love interest — then fed to a 1,000 lbs brown bear.

MERLIN, Ore. — If you're experiencing heartache this Valentine's Day, you don't just have to grin and bear it. As the saying goes, revenge is a fish best served to a hulking 1,000-pound brown bear.

That said, the experience could be either vengeful catharsis or an act of the utmost affection.

This Valentine's Day, Wildlife Images Rehabilitation & Education Center is offering two identical offers with radically different sentiments — but either way, $20 buys you a salmon bearing the name of your choice which will be fed to one of their brown bears, Kodi and Yak.

The intention, however, belongs to the buyer. Under "A Great Catch," you can honor your sweetheart by making them a nutritious meal for the majestic brown bears. Or with "Catch & Release," you can feed your jilted lover to some ravenous hirsute juggernauts.

Originally, Wildlife Images' offer included a special certificate and photos commemorating the occasion. Now the offer has become so popular that the organization has had to limit the perks.

"Due to the overwhelming support, Wildlife Images can no longer honor the certificate and photo opportunity for the Catch and Release option," the organization posted on its website.

Wildlife Images warned that the salmon supply is limited, but it has not discontinued either promotion — so, theoretically, there's still time to get in on the action.
