That’s not a hyena or a wolf. That’s a polar bear. A polar bear is usually furry, fluffy and soft, but today this fur ball of an animal is starving.

This Heartbreaking Picture Of A Polar Bear Is An Indication Of Our Sad And Dangerous Future

Wildlife photographer Kerstin Langenberger posted this shocking image of a polar bear in Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. It is because of the retreating ice that the bears are forced to starve as there is no food for them.

“With the pack ice retreating further and further north every year, they tend to be stuck on land where there’s not much food. In the first year, they lose their first cub. In the second year, they lose their second (and last) cub. Only once I have seen a mother with a nearly independent cub. Only a few times I have seen beautifully fat mothers with beautifully fat young. Many times I have seen horribly thin bears, and those were exclusively females – like this one here. A mere skeleton, hurt on her front leg, possibly by a desperate attempt to hunt a walrus while she was stuck on land”, writes the photographer in her caption.

The above picture is a sad indication of how climate change is affecting our flora and fauna. If this doesn’t stop, these fluffy, furballs will go into extinction!
