Record #207915:

Unusual hunting and feeding behaviour of polar bears on Spitsbergen / Lech Stempniewicz, and 3 others.

Title: Unusual hunting and feeding behaviour of polar bears on Spitsbergen / Lech Stempniewicz, and 3 others.
Author(s): Stempniewicz, Lech.
Date: 2014.
In: Polar Record. (2014.), Vol. 50(253) (2014)
Abstract: Records observations of polar bears (Ursus maritimus) chasing adult reindeer (Rangifer tarandus), catching black guillemot (Cepphus grylle) and feeding on Arctic tern (Sterna paradisea) chicks. Suggests that unusual feeding habits may be in response to declining seal availability due to shrinking ice-cover in Arctic.
