SVALBARD, Norway, June 10 (UPI) -- Researchers have documented a group polar bears with a taste for dolphin. It's the first time bears have been recorded eating the marine mammal.
The first instance was documented in 2014. Researchers with the Norwegian Polar Institute came upon a polar bear with two dead white-beaked dolphins. The scientists believe the bear caught the two dolphins the same way bears catch seals, by waiting for specimens trapped under the ice and in need of oxygen to emerge through a hole in ice.
