The late formation of Arctic sea ice may be forcing some hungry and desperate polar bears in northern Manitoba to resort to cannibalism. "A big male polar bear separated a young cub from its mother and had its way with the cub," some tourists said. "But the whole time, while that mother polar bear watched and witnessed, and actually after the big bears left, she still tried to take care of it. It was difficult for us to witness and it was difficult for us to hear about and learn about. Retired Environment Canada biologist Ian Stirling, who has studied bears all over the arctic, said evidence suggests the cubs are being killed for food, not just so the male can mate with the sow.
