A starving polar bear strayed hundreds of kilometers away from its natural habitat and wandered into the industrial city of Norilsk in northern Siberia.

A polar bear was hundreds of miles from his natural habitat, roaming around a village in eastern Russia. The exhausted animal reportedly travelled on an ice floe. He was tranquilised and airlifted back home and released back into the wild.
