Polar bears are killing and eating their own young now. Who didn’t see this coming? The notoriously snooty eaters have been becoming increasingly selective with their diets over the past 2 decades. A joint study by the University of Southern North America, and Zappos.com found that 30% of male polar bears would choose to go hungry over eating “gross seals” anymore.
The traditional diet of walrus, ice, seals, snow, and the Inuit has been dropping out of fashion in favor of more trendy fare such as European tourists, foie gras, American tourists, and Chinese tourists. The global economic collapse has hit polar bears hard though, as fewer and fewer of these scrumptious treats can afford to visit the far north, forcing them to eat their young.
