Polar bears

Polar bears

We had an afternoon learning about polar bear behaviour and how to deter them. Subtle noises can work, and making yourself big can work too but if you need to scare a bear away, items such as bear bangers and flares are your friends. If a bear charges for you – there is really only one option and that is to shoot it. We went to a shooting range and shot a WW1 Mauser rifle. This bought many (many) tears to my eyes. I hate guns!
