Churchill, Manitoba, Canada - November 14, 2012: A warning sign regarding the presence of polar bears on the shoreline of the Churchill River in Churchill. The sign warns people not to walk in the area and asks that people call the number provided if polar bears are sighted.
Churchill, Manitoba in early November is a gathering point for polar bears. The Churchill River flows into Hudson's Bay so the salt water freezes earlier than other locations and allows the bears to get out onto the sea ice in order to hunt for seals. The town of Churchill has signs posted throughout to remind residents and tourists to be aware of the presence of polar bears.
