Wait, what? Polar Bears are supposed to be extinct by now? And moving North because their habitat is melting away due to global warming.
Authorities in the Russian archipelago of Novaya Zemlya have declared a state of emergency after more than 50 polar bears were spotted in the region.
Russia's Novaya Zemlya is considering a cull to repel a "mass invasion" of polar bears, like this 1 in a young family's hallway. 52 bears counted in Belushya Guba. They should be hunting seals on sea ice but global warming is driving them to land @joli_mai https://t.co/h0HTZ3zWln pic.twitter.com/xYofvdizXb
