Polar Bear Visited St. Anthony, NL…Many Moons Ago

This was not the first or the last Polar Bear to find its way into the Town of St. Anthony on the Peninsula`s Northern Tip.

The bear is quite impressive in size as my friend stands at over 6 feet in height. I had taken the time to read the article again which made the Northern Pen Newspaper many moons ago. There is a back story as to how it ended up being preserved and how it died. I won`t spoil it for you, but recommend if you are in Town to visit the preserved bear at the Town Hall during regular business hours.

This is about as close as I`d like to come with a Polar Bear.
