The Great Polar Bear Feast

Special | 54m 41s | Video has closed captioning.

Every year, up to eighty polar bears gather on the frozen shores of Barter Island, near the village of Kaktovik, to feast on the hunter-harvested bowhead whale remains. This extraordinary gathering not only highly unusual, it turns dangerous as the whale bones are picked bare, and the huge group of polar bears heads for the town.
