Polar bear near Longyearbyen

A polar bear in the close vicinity of Longyearbyen is not an everyday event, it is the first time since October 2014. The police is out with helicopter and snow mobile to make sure the situation is kept under control, while many onlookers are gathering on the rim of Longyearbyen near Adventdalen.

The bear is on the shoreline in Adventdalen, maybe (rough estimate) 2 km away from town. And he (or she?) is the only one who does not care about all the excitement: he is lying, sleeping and doing nothing so far.
