Actual physical contact between humans and Polar Bears almost always ends tragically for the human. You might say this surveyor (
locked out of his truck!!!
) in Barrow, Alaska, was lucky. That is if, by lucky, you mean the fellow only needed a trip to the hospital emergency room instead of the morgue. Use the link if you want to see how close this really was.

Full story and photos of the bear getting verrrrrry close . . .

Sooo so cute. Imagine if the polar bear had caught up to him. Nom nom nom and a Coca-Cola to wash it down.



Just kidding, that's very scary. But one has to wonder what the photographer was doing taking pictures while this guy is clearly in danger.

That's what I was thinking. Whoever he was, he wasn't much help. Although, I don't know exactly what he could have done.

I know what I would've done.....looked for a change of underwear.

I didn't realize polar bears actively hunt humans. Good to know. I'll never look at a Coke commercial the same again.
