For the First time In History, Polar Bears Observed Eating Dolphins and Freezing the Leftovers

The dolphin and the Polar Bear are two of the world’s most loved animals, but there is very little love between them. For the first time in recorded history, Scientists have observed Polar Bears catching and eating dolphins. The fact that these two species have crossed paths at all raises some red flags.  Of course, global warming is blamed, rather than the warming oceans and a dying earth (More on that below).

While White-beaked dolphins are frequent visitors to Svalbard waters in the summer, they have never been reported this far north in early spring, until recently.

Usually, the Svalbard fjords and coast is covered by ice. But in the winter of 2013 and 2014, when the dolphins and bears were first seen together, they were ice-free.

Polar bears Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) inhabit Arctic areas where sea ice is present for significant parts of the year. In most areas, they mainly feed on ringed (Pusa hispida) and bearded seals (Erignathus barbatus). Other species of marine mammals may be of importance based on their availability as prey or for scavenging.

Polar Research says, “The warming of the Arctic is significantly changing the ecosystem and relations between species. As the polar bear habitat shrinks in coming decades, scientists anticipate reductions in where polar bears are observed, and these changes are predicted to be significant in the Svalbard and Barents Sea area.”

Jon Aars of the Norwegian Polar Institute and his colleagues have made the first ever observations of polar bears eating white-beaked dolphins that had ventured too far north – in fact, they saw this happen several times last year.

The first incident was in late April 2014. Collecting data in Svalbard, Norway, Aars’s team stumbled across a bear with two dead white-beaked dolphins, a species no one had ever seen the bears preying upon before.

“We think the bear killed them, [using] a similar technique as killing seals,” says Aars. He thinks it probably caught the two dolphins when, trapped below the sea ice, they found a small hole and surfaced for air.

The bear, pictured below, had already eaten most of the first dolphin but couldn’t finish all of its catch in one sitting. So it made use of the natural freezer, storing a second dolphin – still largely intact – under the snow for a later snack, presumably.

Image shows apparently very hungry bears eating dolphins for the first time, before freezing the leftovers in the snow.

Hiding leftover food is generally considered atypical of polar bears.  “We think he caught the second dolphin because he could, and then had extra food later,” says Aars.

Subsequently, the team came across at least five other polar bears feeding on dead dolphins in the same area.

The authors of the study describe the bear as having “clearly visible ribs” and being “very skinny”.  Indicating a shortage in food.

“We were surprised as dolphins have not been reported in that area before,” says Aars. The explanation could be that the Svalbard waters were unusually warm at the time, and that a pod of dolphins had become trapped there when strong northerly winds had pushed them out of open water and in among the ice.

Ian Stirling of the University of Alberta in Canada is not surprised that the bears decided to feast on dolphin meat: polar bears are known to be opportunistic predators, and have been recorded eating many different animals.

“They will eat any marine mammal given a chance,” he says. “The bigger surprise was that the dolphins were entrapped before they could migrate south for the winter.”

As the climate warms, Stirling believes the sight of polar bears tucking into weird meals could become more common. Polar bears are “willing to take and use anything possible when available”, he says.

The Polar Bear is also listed as a special concern by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada, in Alaska, and the U.S. listed the polar bear as threatened under the U.S. Endangered Species Act because their sea ice habitat is melting down

Prophecy:

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished – Isaiah 51:6 (KJV).

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:- 2 Peter 3:5 (KJV).

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up- 2 Peter 3:10 (KJV).

”..keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so-called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith…”-1 Timothy 6:20-21 (KJV). 

“And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring ” Luke 21:11. 25 (KJV).

Climate change / global warming use the same tactics as Evolution, its premise serves to defraud our Creator, goes against biblical teaching and understanding, is a fear mongering tactic, and a counterfeit of the word of God.  Not to mention, global warming serves the population control agenda very well, too. But hey, this is about Polar Bears, we can briefly discuss the key points of the so-called “global warming” at the end of this article.

Most of us by now agree, that GLOBAL warming (climate change) is a FRAUD perpetrated on us by the population control prophets and heralded by propaganda mouthpieces like Al Gore who stood to gain, and still does, billions of dollars in making the world buy this lie.  Ever wonder why global warming facts are notoriously hard to come by? Most of them are based on man-made assumptions and faulty computer simulated causation models, more opine and very little science. Hardly a basis for the doom and gloom, overpopulation scares, and other such nonsensical things that are emerging from the staunch supporters of global warming.

When we consider animals such as the woolly mammoth, who flourished in the changing climates after Noah’s Flood, and eventually went extinct, we can clearly see their extinction had absolutely nothing to do with man, and everything to do with the natural cycle of things, and a dying earth.

The Bible teaches that earth and all its subsystems-including the climate system-are the product of a God who is an infinitely wise Designer, an infinitely powerful Creator, and an infinitely faithful Sustainer. It teaches that when God finished creating the earth and everything in it, He declared it “very good” (Genesis 1:31); that He created it by His infinitely powerful word (Genesis 1:3, 6, 9, 14, 20, 24; John 1:1–3); and that He sustains it “by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3).

“…While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” – Genesis 8:22 (KJV). 

And being that God himself told us to be “fruitful and multiply” we can find peace and rest in knowing that our Creator and infinitely wise Designer, could most definitely sustain population and growth.  The bible clearly tells us that the earth is and will grow old like a garment (Hebrews 1:11, Psalm 102:25-26, 2 Peter 3:5)  and we are to look for a new heaven and a new earth (2 Peter 3:13, Isaiah 65:17, Revelation 21:1).  It also teaches us of damages, the fountains of the deep, and changes to the earth, (Peleg, See Genesis 10:25), which gives us clues that the earth is in fact dying, including the animals.

While I will not dismiss that there are man-made disasters, and there are in fact “destroyers of earth,” (oil spills, pollution, etc), that would not explain other phenomenons we see worldwide. The simple truth is that increased volcanic activity has caused some of the warming waters, which in turn has impacted the receding glaciers, melting ice caps, and animal migration changes.

But, it is not due to overpopulation or caused by man as global warming advocates would have us believe. The damage man has caused is minor in comparison the other natural causes and dying earth.  As the earth dies and wears out like a garment, we will of course see an impact on a variety of animal and plant species (For further biblical study, please see Psalm 102:26, Isaiah 24:19, Isaiah 34:4, Isaiah 51:6, and Micah 1:4) all explain a dying earth, just as God told us.

The BIBLE really puts all these issues in context, what we should be concerned with most is reaching the lost and spreading the word of God.  The only global warming the earth will see, is the fire judgment of God:

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up- 2 Peter 3:10 (KJV).

In the Faithful Service of Jesus Christ,
