Polar Bears In UK Are Having The Time Of Their Lives


There may only be four polar bears in England but it’s safe to say they’re having a cracking time.

While the snow has caused many a problem for us humans, the polar bears are naturally very at home – there’s even pictures to prove it!

The polar bear enclosure at Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster has shared images of its inhabitants Victor, Pixel, Nobby and Nissan.

Look at these fellas:


Carnivore keeper Adam Pfluger said, as reported by the Metro:

They absolutely seem to love it. Nissan and Nobby especially, the two youngsters, they’ve really enjoyed rolling around in the snow.

We’ve been out in the paddocks to hide their food in the snow and stuff like that for them.

They’ve had a really good time trying to dig through all the snow trying to find their breakfast.

The four bears live in a custom built 10-acre reserve which includes a selection of lakes.


Forecasters at the Met Office have projected 20 inches of snow to fall tomorrow as Storm Emma moves in from the Atlantic.

Storm Emma is a mixture of blizzards, lightning, chilling rain and gales – if you live in London, the southeast, the southwest, Wales or the Midlands, you might be feeling her brunt.

The wild conditions are expected to rise up to the UK from the west coast of Portugal on Wednesday evening, with 50mph gusts set to take action in the UK on Thursday and Friday.

The so-called ‘Beast from the East’ is set to generate four days of snow, with temperatures set to drop to as low as -15°C in certain areas of the country.


Train operators Southeastern and Great Northern urged their customers to get home early, ideally before 6pm, amid fears severe weather conditions would shut down transport.

The Met Office put in place amber warnings for the East Midlands, East of England, North East, West Midlands and Yorkshire & Humber on Tuesday (February 27) with rising concerns over the impact of snow.

Three other yellow weather warnings are in place from February 26 across the UK and the Met Office are reporting the weather will bring with it risk to human life.

Stay safe people!
