Polar bear shot dead after attacking cruise ship guard – BBC News

Polar bear shot dead after attacking cruise ship guard 29 July 2018 These are external links and will open in a new window Close share panel Image caption An estimated 3,000 polar bears enjoy Svalbard’s icy climes A polar bear has been shot dead after it attacked a cruise ship guard on Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, within the Arctic Circle.
The guard suffered non-life-threatening head injuries and is said to be in a stable condition.
He was assigned to protect tourists who had landed on Svalbard’s northernmost island from the MS Bremen, which is operated by Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.
The German cruise company said a second guard shot the bear “in self-defence”.
The injured man was airlifted to hospital in the town of Longyearbyen, on Spitsbergen island. Polar bears ‘running out of food’
Svalbard is a wilderness of glaciers and ice caps that lies between Norway and the North Pole.
An estimated 60% of it is covered with ice, and its 3,000 polar bears are said to outnumber the human population. Image copyright Reuters Image caption Cruise company Hapag-Lloyd said the bear was shot in “self-defence”
All ships in the area are obliged to employ bear guards to protect passengers on sightseeing tours.
“There are very strict rules here as the islands are visited by many polar bears in the summer, so we all need to be vigilant when we are ashore,” one guide wrote in a post on Hapag-Lloyd’s website.
Critics online, including British comedian Ricky Gervais, blamed the attack on human intrusion into polar bear territories.

Fox News Confronts Rudy Giuliani Over Michael Cohen ‘Liar’ Flip-Flop

POLITICS 07/29/2018 11:18 am ET Updated 1 day ago Fox News Host Confronts Rudy Giuliani Over Michael Cohen ‘Liar’ Flip-Flop In May, Giuliani said Cohen was “honest and honorable.” Now he’s changed his tune. By Nick Baumann 1.7k 760 Rudy Giuliani can’t get his story straight on Michael Cohen — and Fox News anchor Chris Wallace is calling him out on it.
On “Fox News Sunday,” Wallace confronted Giuliani, who serves as one of President Donald Trump ’s attorneys, on his flip-flopping about Cohen, Trump’s longtime lawyer and fixer.
In May, Giuliani called Cohen an “honest, honorable lawyer,” Wallace noted. “But now you say, Quote: , your words… ‘a pathological liar’ who’s been lying for years. So what happened?”
Giuliani said his shift stemmed from the revelation that Cohen had been “surreptitiously recording his clients” — referring to the tape of Cohen and Trump discussing a payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who’s alleged she had a long-running affair with Trump before he became president. The tape was released last week and initially aired on CNN.
“Obviously if I knew that, I never would’ve said he was a reputable lawyer,” Giuliani said. “I would’ve said he was a scoundrel.”
“I knew nothing bad about Michael Cohen until all of this started to happen in the past couple weeks,” Giuliani insisted.
Giuliani must not have been following previous news accounts about Cohen, who served as Trump’s personal lawyer for more than a decade and was targeted by an FBI raid in April.
Cohen had reportedly compared himself to Tom Hagen , the fictional consigliere of the Corleone crime family in “The Godfather.” His business ventures are the subject of considerable interest from federal investigators, The New York Times reported in May, while Giuliani was still defending him.
And Giuliani months ago corrected a Cohen falsehood. Cohen claimed in February that he had paid Stormy Daniels, a porn actress who also has said she had a brief affair with Trump, $130,000 out of his own pocket, and Trump in April claimed he didn’t know about the payment. Giuliani later admitted that Trump had repaid Cohen.
