Incredible Vintage Photos Showing Russians Feeding Polar Bears From Between the 1950s and 1970s

At the very eastern part of Russia, where lands of the USA and the Russian Federation nearly adjoining each other and only small neck splits these two spacious countries, there are Chukchi Peninsula and the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug district situated. The place isn’t so populated and we cannot say for sure what kind of inhabitants it has more, people or white bears.

The climate is very severe and sometimes weather can be so fierce in winter that the temperature falls 40C degrees below zero (it is the same by Fahrenheit, -40F) so that poor white bears and their child start starving and freezing though they aren’t supposed to freeze.

And where do you think they would search for help? They will go to their next-door neighbors looking for help of any kind. People didn’t turn their backs on the poor and starving animals and started to feed them every now and then. Of course you do not have such big amounts of meat at home to feed several white bears. And people decided to feed the bears up with what they had in abundance – tins, or to be more exact, condensed milk.
