A fight between polar bears might seem intense, but it doesn't always mean there's trouble. What are your thoughts on this fierce encounter?

@Flejt .. The answer to your question, is not really he would have Certainly FIRED a couple of ROUNDS Away from but near the Bear, a lot of the local Bears know what a GUN is and they Definitely know that they are BAD :D] .v ..

Maybe it's father and son,getting to meet for the first time in a long time. The younger bear was submissive, and the older one was just seeing if junior was ready. I just seen The Lion king today and I was thinking of Simba and his father. I know it's kind of corny, but this video reminded me of the movie. LOL

Imagine shooting a polar bear with a soviet PTRD-41 14.5mm caliber that meant to penetrate 33mm of armor steel but instead it shoot at bear

i gotta give it to these wildlife photographers. They have some balls. Polar bears are ambush predators, they know how to hunt. It wouldn't be beyond them to come from the flanks or behind, or from below ice. And good luck getting a shot off once they're on you chewing your neck and face.

They'd probably not say, but I'd like to know what protection they have, and their personal practices for safety. Surely they've got bear mace, and take normal camping precautions, but people tend to pick up habits of their own, that'd be interesting information. 12 gauge is that? Maybe a 44 mag pistol, that'd be a minimum when you'd be dinner.

Why don't you guys go up to the Polar bear since the Demoncrats tell us they are cute and cuddly dying from climate catastrophe.

Seeing the showdown of the male polar bear, the strongest and largest animal on the ground, I feel so weak and small as a human being. It is so sad to see such a strong polar bear go hungry because it has no food.

The bartender asks "what'll it be?" The bear says "I'll have a gin......and tonic."  the bartender says "ok, but why the big pause?" The bear looks down and says "I don't know, I've always had them."

Rigel (28 days ago)
All these comments about "Why didn't he just use his gun?" The bear doesn't know what a gun is. Wave it around all you want, it won't know what it can do. Oh... you meant why not shoot the bear right off the bat? The situation was under control. Not everything needs to be shoot first, ask questions later. What a disgusting attitude to have smh.

@Pinda with polor bears loud noises makes them attack.
Bess Snow (11 hours ago)
I mean...if they do end up shooting a bear, you think they would let us view the footage?? That part would get canceled out. And they can also put some bears to sleep too, tranquilizers etc, and then have a footage of another bear sitting down. How would we even know the difference.
Pinda (5 days ago)
Shoot a warning shot, it usually scares animals off

I live in James Bay, there’s been 2 polar bears that came where I live about first time in more than 100 years I believe. The temperature goes very high and very low.

No way a Kodiak could beat that monster.kodiak are bigger than grizzlies but they are really fat. The polar bear has just the bigger structure he is the true biggest land carnivore.

if anybody ever had a bowl of ice outside in the winter and broke open the ice, it takes a while to freeze over again. Same in the arctic, ice breakers keep areas open so ships can travel through the ice and the built more and more of them. When you keep breaking the ice and keeping it open, eventualle the water will warm up becaus in those areas where the ice is gone the water will absorbe the sunlight while the ice will reflect it. Why doesn't any country ever forbid these ice breakers? Sure, the water doesn't heat up a few degrees in a year, but give it decades and you will see a few degrees. A little here and a little there and befor you know it we have destroyed our world. My opinion!

Isn’t that a dart gun? Or is it an actual shotgun?

He didn’t want to kill it the gun was for protection if he can solve it without killing the bear he would

Jorge Flores a I’m sure a wildlife savior wouldn’t want to kill a polar bear. That’s unless it’s EXTREMELY life-threatening, use a rock and if it gets dangerous, run, if you know you’re his meal, shoot.
Jorge Flores (11 days ago)
@Cola Sol I didn't say shoot the bear for no reason but he should've at least had it ready IN CASE the bear attacks considering polar bears are predators that see humans as food.

How do you produce this documentary? Where does the crew live and sleep, how do you get so close to the bears and why are you always freshly shaved? All that seems logistically impossible to me. Thanks you though for the amazing footage!
