Polar bear attack in Tem­pel­fjor­den: case clo­sed in Nor­way

Nor­we­gi­an aut­ho­ri­ties will not con­ti­nue with any fur­ther cri­mi­nal pro­se­cu­ti­on regar­ding the polar bear attack on a camp in Tem­pel­fjor­den in August 2011, during which a 17 year old was kil­led and 4 other ones part­ly serious­ly inju­red. The Sys­sel­man­nen deci­ded alrea­dy in late Febru­a­ry that the inci­dent was a com­bi­na­ti­on of several extre­me­ly unlu­cky cir­cum­s­tan­ces rather than a cri­mi­nal offence (see Febru­a­ry news on this web­site). This decisi­on was now con­fir­med by the attour­ney in char­ge in north Nor­way.

This does not con­cern pos­si­ble fur­ther cri­mi­nal pro­se­cu­ti­on by Bri­tish aut­ho­ri­ties.

The polar bear that atta­cked the group in Tem­pel­fjor­den was at least has hungry as this very thin bear in Duve­fjord (Nord­aus­t­land). Addi­tio­nal­ly it had strong pain from the bad con­di­ti­on of his teeth.
