Polar Bear Shot in Iceland  

For the second time since April a polar bear has made its way the 300km from Greenland. Even though it most likely drifted part of the way on an ice flow, in both cases they must have swum tremendous distances over the open Atlantic.

Polar bears are not native to Iceland. Prior to these two incidences there hadn’t been a bear seen in Iceland in 20 years. More details here, and a map.
