Polar Bear Weight Loss

Polar Bear Weight Loss

In this June 15, 2014 photo provided by the United States Geological Survey, a polar bear rests on a chunk of sea ice in the Arctic. A new study released on Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018 shows some polar bears in the Arctic are shedding pounds during the time they are supposed to be beefing up. Scientists blame climate change for shrinking the ice cover on the Arctic Ocean that the polar bears need for hunting. (Brian Battaile/USGS via AP)
