Ironic, isn't it?

"‘Invasion’: Polar Bears Terrorize Arctic Town

Dozens of polar bears invaded a small Russian military town nestled on the southern end of the Arctic islands of Novaya Zemlya, forcing authorities to declare a state of emergency.

Since December, 52 polar bears have terrorized Belushya Guba, a small town of about 560 people. The bears were moving from south to north to find food when they spotted a plentiful source: trash bins full of edible waste.

“People are scared, afraid to leave their houses. Their daily activities are disrupted, parents are afraid to let the children go to school and kindergarten,” local official Aleksandr Minaev said in a statement.

Precautions have been taken to protect school children and special escorts shuttle military personnel around the town, what’s troubling, however, is that the bears are unfazed by attempts to scare them off.

“I have been in Novaya Zemlya since 1983, but there has never been so many polar bears in the vicinity.” Zhigansha Musin, head of Novaya Zemlya’s government, told the TASS news agency.

“I recall that over five polar bears are in the [military] garrison chasing people and entering residential buildings,” Musin said.

Local officials are considering culling the bears, though Russia’s wildlife agency has not issued any licenses to kill polar bears. Polar bears are a protected species in Russia, like in other Arctic countries, and will send scientists to assess the situation.

“However, if a cull is banned, we will have to embark on a longer and less safe way for local residents,” Musin added. “A total of 50 polar bears are near the human settlements so we have loads of work ahead.”

Predictably, global warming has been blamed for the horde of polar bears moving into Belushya Guba. News reports of the event point to declining Arctic sea ice cover around Novaya Zemlya as behind why an unprecedented amount of bears are forced onto land.

“Global warming is blamed for the problem but as is so often the case, that claim does not stand up to scrutiny,” veteran zoologist Susan Crockford wrote of the event on her blog PolarBearScience.com."

'Member when polar bears were going to go extinct because of global warming?  I 'member.

Polar bears are starving because of the lack of arctic sea ice and are now driven to eat human flesh.
