Careful on your walk~:o)
Day or night…the “polar bear patrol” was constantly busy herding bears out of the village of Kaktovik & to the sea.
The bears didn’t really take kindly to being “chased & herded”, but the majority of them eventually move on.
Unfortunately a few stubborn bears that persist their rambling through the village have to be shot before a villager is hurt or killed.
Human-bear interactions are inevitable here for a short period of time until the frozen sea calls them back out on the ice to hunt seals.
