According to Illya Mordvintsev, a polar bear expert from Severtsov Institute of Problems of Ecology and Evolution in Moscow, polar bears were already known to have traits of cannibalism but it was not until now that these traits were observed quite often.

Normally, these animals hunt seals by wandering on sea ice. But as the ice is melting, they need to be close to the shore, thus they can’t hunt the usual way.

Human intervention has a severe impact on the habitat. Ships commonly pass through the Gulf of Ob to extract Arctic Liquid Natural Gas.

Vladimir Sokolov, a Russian scientist, who has been in numerous expeditions before also stated that the weather became hotter this year than ever.
