Polar Bear Shot

The polar bear, left was killed after attacking a German cruise ship worker on Norway's Svalbard archipelago last week.

Svalbard has seen five such polar bear attacks in 40 years.

The 2011 bear attacked a group of 14 on a British school trip.   A 17-year-old died and that bear was also killed.

Polar bears are protected in Norway unless, of course they maul and/or kill people.
