As cute as a polar bear looks, they are a powerful animal. It's unsafe for tourists to encourage their curiosity even from the safety of a vehicle.
In one swat of the paw, a polar bear could turn a supposedly safe bear watching experience into a frightening ordeal. Rental vehicles are available from the town of Churchill in Manitoba Canada, but tourists are recommended to keep a safe distance from the polar bears.
