Photo: Polar Bear Games Churchill Manitoba

Peek-a-boo games are not what a Polar Bear does on a regular basis around Churchill, Manitoba and the bear would always come out a winner.

A Polar Bear does not play a lot of games with humans, but this one seemed to appear from behind the growing shrubbery and a close up picture was in order. His beautiful white body appeared from behind the bush with his cute face staring right at us.

His dark black eyes that stare at us, do not appear too threatening yet and backing away is the wise choice to make. At this time of the year, the Polar Bear is starting to awaken from resting and sleeping for the last few months. That does not mean that he is not always ready and alert when any sign of threat is around, as a Polar Bear is not willing to play games with anyone or anything.

... When a seal has been stranded along the shores of the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba, the bear will be the first one to sniff it out and make itself a fine meal.

While touring around the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Manitoba, be sure to stay very close to your vehicle and do not venture too far from cover. At any given time, a Polar Bear may appear from behind a rock cliff where he has been resting for a while. A Polar Bear does not like many games and he will be the first one to show you who is boss.
