Polar Bears adrift

Polar bears stranded on ice berg.

The bears looked frustrated and scared as they clung to the ice in the Olga Straight of Svalbard, Norway.

Photographer Eric Lefranc, 40, told The Sun that the cub was only about nine-months-old and ‘looked distressed’.

Experts have said that polar bears have been known to swim up to 50 miles in one go though, so were hopeful that these two could find their way back to land.
