Scientists strapped a camera to a polar bear... now see the footage

The US Geological Survey is studying the bears’ behaviour.

THE US GEOLOGICAL Survey has released a portion of the results of a video experiments it’s carried out using polar bears.

Video collars were attached to four female bears near Prudhoe Bay in Alaska two months ago. Each bear wore a collar for about ten days.

The footage shows ice and sea living from the polar bears’ point of view, and reveals one animal trying to eat a frozen seal and flirting with a potential mate.

The USGS says that the videos are being used to try to understand how polar bears are responding to declining sea ice.
