Polar bear tries to hitch a ride with Mounties in northern Manitoba

Mounties run into some tough characters on the job.

Though, not usually this tough. Unless of course, you’re on patrol in Churchill, Manitoba, which is generally considered the polar bear capital of the world.

That’s where an RCMP got a little too close for comfort today with one curious bear, which clamoured on the back of a police car.

Visitors flock to the northern Canadian community on the western shore of Hudson Bay to catch a glimpse of the polar bears, which roam freely in the area.There’s even a polar bear jail in the town, where wayward bears are sometimes taken to cool their heels.

And little wonder. Check out the latest polar bear activity report.
