Polar Bear Wrestlemania

Erica Matson is in Churchill, Canada this month working on a show about polar bears. That’s where I filmed one of my 1st stories for National Geographic.  The circle of life keeps on spinning. Here’s a video from my last trip to Churchill with lots of bears wrestling showing why Churchill is the best place for viewing polar bears.

Every fall polar bears gather near Churchill Manitoba, Canada waiting for the waters of Hudson Bay to freeze. The males spend part of that down time wrestling, sparing with each other.  This video shows some of the action with the bears standing on their hind legs, pushing, and shoving and fighting like big furry versions of Hulk Hogan and the Rock facing off in a cage match.
