Caption: Fur of a polar bear (Ursus maritimus) drying in the sun on a hut. The polar bear was shot as it approached the village. Increased ice melting caused by global warming can force bears to scavenge around human areas, as their own habitats disappear. Filmed in Disko Bay, Greenland, in summer 2012, which was a record year for the Arctic sea ice minimum.
