Russia is a very strange land. It’s not that I don’t have respect for Russia and its citizens, I absolutely do. It just seems you see a lot of weird stories come out of the country. One that is making its way around the internet currently is actually about two separate videos covering one event. In Cape Schmidt in Chukotka, which is the most Eastern part of Russia, almost touching Alaska a wild polar bear was apparently wandering around a coastal facility. Polar bears are majestic creatures, but they are also one of the most apex predators on the planet and are definitely not to be messed with or taken lightly. I guess someone in this video missed that message however, and decided it would be a good idea to try to feed the bear. As you can guess, it worked out less than well for her. What happened next is what has everyone talking however. Check out this controversial story and see what side you land on.
So our story starts with this lady. Details are still a little murky on this whole scenario, but from what is generally believed, the women had thrown a chicken bone to the Polar Bear. It appears she was trying to move forward to give the bear more, when it decided that she looked like a better meal than some tiny chicken bone. The bear attacks her multiple times until something forces it to back away from the women. She gathers herself and is able to walk away from the encounter.

Alright, so let’s move on to the part of this whole thing that is stirring up all the controversy. Another video has been connected to the first one, showing a man tossing a dog from the top of what looks like a set of shipping containers near the corner where the woman was.
The man almost seems to be consoling the dog or trying to keep it from going after the Polar Bear. He quickly grabs the dog from behind though and tosses him directly at the Polar Bear in an attempt to distract the bear from the woman and bystanders.
The dog surely doesn’t realize what is going on. To me, this is absolutely heartbreaking.

What do you guys think? Personally, I don’t see any women near the Polar Bear at this point in time, so I really don’t see what the point throwing the dog in there was. What is even more sickening is the man appears to be laughing after he throws the dog and it starts yelping as the Polar Bear attacks it with its powerful claws. This to me is nothing short of animal abuse and torture. It is difficult to judge however, because we don’t know for certain whether a woman’s life was actually in danger at the time the dog was thrown. What are your guys opinions?
