Polar bear sighting on Fogo Island

There has been another polar bear sighting, this time on Fogo Island.

The RCMP says a polar bear is in the area of the Great Auk Trail, Joe Batts Arm.

Police ask residents to avoid the area and not to approach the bear for any reason, including to take photos.

The WWF says polar bears’ powerful sense of smell attracts them to human waste, stored food, dog teams, and animal carcasses.

Polar bears are aggressive.
