Record #197428:

Observations of cannibalism by polar bears (Ursus maritimus) on summer and autumn sea ice at Svalbard, Norway / Ian Stirling, Jenny E. Ross.

Title: Observations of cannibalism by polar bears (Ursus maritimus) on summer and autumn sea ice at Svalbard, Norway / Ian Stirling, Jenny E. Ross.
Author(s): Stirling, Ian.
Ross, Jenny E.
Date: 2011.
In: Arctic. (2011.), Vol. 64(4) (2011)
Abstract: Reports three instances of intraspecific killing and cannibalism of young polar bears by adult males on sea ice in Svalbard in summer and autumn. Area of sea ice that bears can use for hunting declines in summer, and progressively fewer seals are accessible to bears. At this time of year, young polar bears may represent possible food source for adult males.
