Bob Kuhn wrote “The polar bear, which the Germans call ‘Eis Bär’ lives much of the year in the most hostile of environments. He’s footed for it though, with a dense layer of fat and a fur coat to match. He’s an impressive beast, too brave for his own good in those parts of his territory where he and man live in uneasy proximity. In places where they are numerous, such as Churchill, it is easy to forget that the polar bear is as dangerous an animal as there is on earth.”
