Polar bear attack

Warning - graphic images of Polar Bear attack in Churchill, Man.


These are pictures of an actual polar bear attack in Churchill. These pictures were taken while people watched and could do nothing to stop the attack!

Reports from the local newspaper say that the victim will make a full recovery.

This is not for the squeamish...

LOL, you had me going for a minute there, but then I said "hey, this is the happy thread"

He's adorable! I'll take a Polar bear attack like that any day!
