“Pic of the Week”, July 3, 2015: Polar Bears, Manitoba


Manitoba is famous for its polar bears, especially the wild ones around Hudson’s Bay.  For several weeks each fall Churchill draws the attention of animal lovers from around the world, as they flock to this small port town for their chance to see these massive animals on the shore of Hudson’s Bay, waiting for the water to freeze so they can go out and hunt seals.

These polar bears are completely benign, not man-eaters but created by man.  We came across this colorful display of polar bears behind the Manitoba Legislative Building in Winnipeg.  Beautifully and cleverly designed and executed by the artists, now presented for your enjoyment!
