National Geographic Exclusive Video: Polar Bear Cannibalizes Cub

Three polar bears on the sea ice

Last summer, Jim Napoli on the National Geographic Explorer captured rare footage of a male chasing, killing, and eating a cub. The video we made is now out on National Geographic.

This is life in the Arctic, as Wade Davis says here, but viewer discretion is advised. You can’t unwatch this.

Shot, narrated and edited by the Lindblad + National Geographic Explorer + National Geographic video team, with Jennifer Kingsley as producer.

This video was picked up all over the net, including the Washington Post, Metro UK, The Daily Mail.

Update: This video reached half a million views within its first week on-line.
