Iced In - SOLD
Pouch Cove harbour
An early spring storm with northeasterly winds brought pack ice close to shore and with it a few polar bears. Where I live, we got the ice, but not the bears, they were further north.
I always feel sorry for the bears, as they're usually disoriented and hungry. People get too curious and too close and it becomes a dangerous situation. The bears if too close for comfort, are usually tranquilized and airlifted back north. Sometimes it ends badly for the bear if it endangers human life.
You can see some photos of bears on the Bonavista Peninsula this week here and here. And video footage here.
