Polar Bears with a Fortuitous Catch
Male Polar Bears with a fortuitous out of season meal of a seal on the tidal flats of Hudson Bay, Churchill, Minnesota, Canada. These bears have not had anything substantial to eat for 8 months, and are waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze so they can hunt on the Arctic ice for the northern winter.Adult male polar bears weigh from 775 to more than 1,500 pounds, 350 to more than 680 kilos. Polar Bears are endangered due to global warming. It is estimated that the Churchill population will be unviable in 30 years, and it is the largest single Polar bear population in the world. Polar Bears are to Global Warming/Climate Change what canaries were to mining.
