 _101821_on_polarbear.jpgBiologist Izabela Kulaszewicz was settling in for a lazy evening at the Polish Polar Station, Hornsund, on Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, when a message came over the radio. Two researchers had just spotted a polar bear. 

About 100 meters away, a chubby female polar bear was sniffing the air and walking toward the coast. Soon, she disappeared into the tundra, only to emerge later, galloping toward several reindeer on the shoreline. The pray was dead within 1 minute.

The cook at the research station caught everything on film, making it the first video evidence of polar beareating reindeer—something that had long been assumed, but never clearly seen. “I was shocked,” Kulaszewicz says.

Polar bears could supplement their diets with reindeer in the summeJAOWNHQCLFBAHJLH7ODX34MTZ4.jpgr when sea ice is low, Stempniewicz says. “We could view this as a little piece of good news, at least for the local polar bears,” says Steven Amstrup, chief scientist at Polar Bears International.

James Joyce to the man asking to shake the hand that had written Ulysses: “It’s done a lot of other things as well.”

Vegans need a NSFW warning ⚠️ 

If a vegan clicks into a thread titled “First footage of a polar bear hunting and eating a reindeer” they need an eye test.

That's Erin from that Jubilee video trying to speak to the manager of polars bears to let them know their reindeer diet isn't actually vegan
