A polar bear caught chomping on a goose egg. No fries with that, though.
We humans have been seeing a trend towards slow food, but it looks like polar bears may be headed in the opposite direction. Joshua Davis, Michael Kirby Smith and James Gorman recently made a fascinating video for the New York Times about how scientists in the Western Hudson Bay have observed polar bears gorging themselves on easy-to-grab goose eggs (with some bears eating 200-300 nests of eggs in a 96 hour period) instead of partaking in their traditional meal of seals. But what does this dining drift mean in terms of climate change? Read on for the full video.
