Two polar bears vie for a seal carcass – Svalbard 2019

Two polar bears vie for a seal carcass. Getting food is tough in the Arctic! On the ice near Svalbard, this large male polar bear had killed a beared seal and you can see from the state he is in that he had been feasting on the kill for some time. The younger male tried several times to sneak a mouthful but was chased off each time. He did manage to get some food but the larger male prevailed. Fantastic encouter.
