What: Polar bear in Churchill, Man.

When: Nov. 1, 2013

Distance from Fargo: Over 900 miles

Comments: My wife and I were visiting the area to view polar bears along the Hudson Bay. The bears congregate annually along the shore waiting for the bay to freeze. They go through a period of “walking hibernation,” fasting for 4-5 months until the bay freezes over. They can then hunt the ringed seal on the frozen ice.
