Polar bear fami­ly in Advent­da­len near Lon­gye­ar­by­en (II)

As repor­ted recent­ly, a polar bear fami­ly has been seen not far from Lon­gye­ar­by­en in Advent­da­len. The Sys­sel­man­nen tried on Satur­day to move them away by sca­ring them with heli­c­op­ter and snow mobi­les. They fol­lo­wed the polar bears to upper Advent­da­len and left them the­re, as they appeared to be moving “into the right direc­tion”.

But they seem to like them­sel­ves in the vici­ni­ty of Lon­gye­ar­by­en and now they are back. They have recent­ly sett­led down to rest in Advent­da­len not far from Mine 7, whe­re they are now under obser­va­ti­on by the aut­ho­ri­ties who are keen on kee­ping con­trol The Sys­sel­man­nen is asking the public to stay away from the area to pre­vent unneces­sa­ry stress for the ani­mals.
