With cool temperatures and thick ice on Hudson Bay the Polar bears had a couple of extra weeks to feast on ringed seals.
When ice melts it’s a trend but when ice remains frozen it’s an “exception” or “blip”. That way the facts are made to fit the alarmism of “warmists”.
“This is the time of year when polar bears eat the most, and the ringed seals are so full of fat and energy," said Daryll Hedman, the northeast regional wildlife manager for Manitoba Conservation.
Hedman said polar bears stay on the Hudson Bay ice for as long as possible so they can feed, adding this year the ice was so thick that the bears stayed out for an extra two weeks.
That’s resulted in fatter, healthier bears this summer, Hedman said, adding the development is not likely a long-term trend.
