      I'm not sure if the video in the OP is the same as the one that National Geographic shot but here is a question and answer they did on their site since a lot of people were asking questions about the bear:

      https://news.nationalgeographic.com/...te-change-spd/

      A few things they mentioned...without an autopsy they wouldn't know why the bear was starving. Polar bears aren't inclined to have diseases like other types of bears. They don't know what happened to that particular bear but guessed that it probably died within 2 days of filming. Bears that are at most risk are those that live where there is seasonal ice (such as the bear in the video). The polar bears in Russia (where the biggest population is) are big and fat.

      I assure you that 'ultra-conservatism' is not the bete noire you imagine. In fact, it's conservatism that conserves, not Socialism.

      But as to your worries about polar bears being conserved, people of any political persuasion do have to examine the propaganda they're being fed on a daily basis by whatever government agency, private corporation, or other such cause. Responsible citizenship requires no less.

      The Ultra-Liberals that started this story admitted they have no idea why the bear was starving. In fact, the polar bear population in the area where this bear was sighted is thriving
