The who cares bears

The article presents information related to polar bears. It has been reported that polar bears are drowning because the Arctic ice they frolic upon is shrinking or becoming too fragile. A report published in the United States revealed that polar bears may be turning to cannibalism due to a warming-driven shortage of seals or Eskimos or ice squirrels, or whatever that polar bears usually eat. The report claimed that three bears had seemingly fallen victim to bear-on-bear dining impulses. Conservationist Deborah Williams said that this represents the brutal downside of global warming.
