From a distance, it looks like a herd of sheep grazing on the side of a hill. But look a little closer, and you’ll realize that those white dots are a little more ferocious, as hundreds of polar bears descended on a whale carcass on the remote Wrangel Island, off the Siberian coast, reports iflscience.com.
”We were cruising down the coast and saw a ‘herd’ or ‘convention’ of Polar Bears on/near the beach,” wrote expedition leader Rodney Russ, in a blog post. “There was a dead bowhead whale and we counted over 150 Polar Bears… that were either feeding or had been feeding on it in the immediate vicinity of the whale.”
Great pictures, but probably best that they were taken from a distance!
