    Oh my God that is so sad. How could anybody let these animals just go extinct and let him die. I saw these Indian people that were feeding they were Wailers and they would take the meat that they used and then put it out for the polar bears and the polar bears there that live by them are so healthy and fat how can anybody let an animal go without food I could never it breaks my heart to see this animal like that it just absolutely breaks my heart

    This is actully true. The global warming are affecting the Polar Bears becuse they can't find food to eat. And there ice bergs are melting becuase of the global warming. I know that this Polar bear went to dry land because he is searching for food like crazy. we just need to help the polar bears we need to treat them with love and passion. we need to make a change we need to make the polar bears feauture a better life.

    Any news that doesn't fit with the banking oligarchs' plan for humanity is ignored by mouthpieces such as National Geographic, Smithsonian, et al.
    National Geographic and the Smithsonian are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Federal Reserve and its controllers.
