Polar bears feast on walrus carcasses in rare footage

Staff writer

Drone footage has captured a pack of polar bears feasting on walrus carcasses near a village in far east Russia.

More than 50 polar bears have gathered on the edge of a village in Russia's far north, environmentalists and residents said, as weak Arctic ice leaves them unable to roam.

As the climate crisis continues to accelerate, polar bears are venturing further inland to find food. The number of polar bears continue to dwindle - most succumbing to starvation - as tradition feeding grounds and food chains collapse.
