Polar bear with cub visits town and is chased away

Last night, a polar bear wanted to walk into town. It was wearing a satellite transmitter. The tracking office of the Norwegian Polar Institute had already noted that this bear was entering Kongsfjorden. But nobody expected it to show up in town.
A flare is fired to chase the bear. It now goes in the water and swims to prins Heinrichsøya.
Later that night, the bear pass Ny-Ålesund and walk towards the glacier.

Solveig Nilsen gave me this nice pictures. Unfortunately I missed the bears because I was sleeping.
