Polar Bear Cannibal

These pictures are pretty gruesome, and this is one of those “can’t unsee” situations; but, I’ve seen them and they are no worse than anything you haven’t seen already in a nature documentary or Faces of Death or your average Hollywood blockbuster.

“Some pictures need little introduction. They stop you in your tracks. These are exclusive pictures to Reuters of a Canadian polar bear eating a cub that it killed and cannibalized.”

The article wants to make you believe this is has something to do with climate change (bears starving for food and turning on their young or being driven from their homes), but the reality is that male polar bears are known to eat their young.  It’s rare, but it does happen.  Is the polar bear in the picture a male or a female?
