Polar bear rarely found in southern Canada, in the province of Quebec – Earth – Science and Technology


In the south of Canada, in the province of Quebec, a polar bear has been found rarely. Witnesses of the beast, which symbolizes global warming, observed on Saturday near the village of Madeleine-Center on the Gaspé Peninsula.

The AFP agency informed about it today. Local police urged them to stay safe at home.

“The dog barked and I heard my partner scream, ‘There’s a bear! There’s a bear! ‘”Sophie Bonneville, who lives in a village of about 2,000 people a few months a year, told AFP. Madeleine-Center is located more than 800 kilometers northeast of Montreal and is currently covered with snow.

“It’s very unusual to see this Nordic species so far from its southern frontier,” Marine ecology biologist Lyne Morissette told AFP. “The current climate change is related to this,” she added.

On Saturday, the police ensured security in the area where people go for walks. “We went from house to house advising residents to stay home,” said local police spokesman Stéphane Tremblay, adding that he had “never experienced a similar situation.”

“Everything is possible with climate change,” Bonneville said. Before the beast got lost in the forest, you just took a picture of it.

A 2020 study published in the journal Nature Climate Change revealed that global warming could lead to the almost complete extinction of this iconic animal. Ice cubes, its environment, are gradually disappearing.
