Daffodils may start blooming in our flowerbeds this week, so I better get a move-on to share a few more wintery photos!
The remote town of Churchill, nestled along the famed Hudson Bay in Canada, has an active Polar Bear Alert Program. During our two trips up there, we were schooled by our tourist guides on how to stay alert. Polar bears are known to wander around in town, so we always looked out the windows before venturing outside! Warning signs are posted in areas where the bears are known to frequent. Nuisance bears are trapped, kept at a holding facility (aka, polar bear jail), and later flown out for relocation.
And forget about crossing signs for pedestrians, school children, deer, etc. In Churchill, there are polar bear crossing signs!
Yeah, it's best to give these animals the right-of-way.
