The bears can be seen roaming the Arctic in the summer months, with a high-profile polar bear migration event set for later this year.
But the animals are also known to travel in packs, sometimes accompanied by people, which are not uncommon.
In recent years, polar bear population numbers have dropped, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the bears are no longer seen as an endangered species, but a species that is “highly vulnerable.”
They are also no longer considered a species of concern for humans.
The International Union of Conservation of Natural History (IUNC) has listed polar bears as “critically endangered” in 2016.
