Youngest polar bear visits town

15 July 2013 03:00

Last night, it was a record. The youngest wild polar bear ever observed inside town. Mother and child moved in the direction of the Netherlands Arctic Station as they were diverted by the car of the Kings Bay watchman. No flares were fired. The bears moved to the sea side, had a break with some nursing and suckling and moved on. All that time I was working behind the computer. The bear must have been visble to me if I would have watched to the right out of the window. I did notice the silence and the emtiness of birds when I went for the toilet outside at 05:00 but did not see any unusual activity either by people or birds.
