Russian Scientists Trapped By Polar Bears Have Been Rescued

Five meteorologists surrounded by polar bears at a research station on a remote island in high-Arctic Russia have been rescued, according to the Guardian. A Russian research vessel happened to be close by and has arrived on scene, supplying dogs and flares that have since scared the polar bears away from the research facility. The scientists had been trapped in their facility by a pack of polar bears that had staked out the area.
