Polar bear attack on cameraman

The British camera man Gordon Buchanan, who was filming Polar bears for BBC in Spitsbergen for 12 months, was during his work attacked by a female Polar bear for about 40 minutes. Buchanan was sitting inside a plexiglass cage, which was strong enough to withstand the attack. A short video can be seen on Youtube zu sehen.

The attack took place on sea ice: A small ship can be seen in the background.
