harbour seal eaten by polar bear

5 July 2023

On the island next to Ny-Ă…lesund, a bear has killed a seal, dragged it over the island and has it eaten away from the resting place of the seals. On our nest check, we still can see the trail, where the polar bear has been moving the seal, despite a two day interval.
Warning: below are pictures with the carcass.
On the north side of the island, we find the carcass, without the skull. To get the carcass so clean, we expect also glaucous gulls had a party here after the bear had left.
