Churchill Weekly Photo – Polar Bear Lift
A late season necessitated more polar bear lifts than usual as Churchill and the surrounding area was inundated with the majestic animals. It looks like the season has finally come to a close with winter weather settling in and the Hudson Bay ice pack finally land – fast against the coast. Good news for polar bears as they are now able to begin replenishing their fat storage through seal – hunting! Hopes are high that the late start will bring a bounty of seals for hungry polar bears and the spring thaw will happen later than usual.
