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.
