Norway fines tourist guide for scaring polar bear

Norway fines tourist guide for scaring polar bear --Svalbard is home to nearly 1,000 polar bears, a protected species since 1973. | 25 Aug 2017 | In the Norwegian far-north, an Arctic tourist guide has been fined 1,300 euros ($1,500) for scaring off a polar bear. When a group of tourists on a snowmobile expedition in May spotted a bear standing still, 900 metres (2,950 ft) away, their guide decided to approach the predator to take a closer look. The animal, spotted on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, fled the scene. "The regulations say that it is forbidden to approach polar bears in such a way that they are disturbed, regardless of the distance," the Svalbard governor's office said in a statement. [That is awesome!]
