Polar bear found feeding at Moose Factory dump shot dead
The sight of a polar bear scrounging in the Moose Factory dump last Friday was very unusual, a polar bear expert says.
Karen Cummings, the manager of the Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat, says hunger was probably driving the bear more south to get food. Warm weather has prevented the formation of ice, so the bears can't get out to hunt seals, she said.
Cummings said the animal looked very thin in the pictures she saw.
