339 dev0guy They blew a golden opportunity to get us back for drop-bears. "Yes, there are heaps of angry polar bears here. They, uhhh, hide behind rocks..."
59 deliciouschickenwing Trolls however....they are a serious concern in Norway, they do not take that lightly.
294 wacokjacko Australians are intrepid, you find them in the middle of the Congo to some remote glacier in Chile, it would not be unusual to find them in Svalbard. Lol
69 longyaus i think they've misunderstood, that's not a warning, that is a marketing promotion.
49 W00DERS0N Ya, but Svalbard... I was tickled to go to Longyearbyen and see the “Do not go past this sign without a loaded weapon” and the gun locker at the grocery store.
20 Krissed Born and raised north of the polar circle I have no idea how many times I've asked about the dangers of polar bears, but it's quite a few. I find it adorable, because the only animal that is a danger around these parts is moose, due to their tendency to sprint over the roads. You don't want those antlers through you windshield and possibly your face at 75mph. LPT: Aim for the back legs if you can't dodge the poor animal.
57 [deleted] Look, Australia's animals and some of the plants like the taste of human blood. They don't know that the rest of the world has animals that don't constantly pose a threat.
16 jvalkyrie87 I don't understand. The official travel advice is this, straight from the smart traveller AU website: "Latest advice, 11 January 2018 There are risks for travellers to the arctic archipelago of Svalbard relating to avalanches, glacier accidents, boating incidents and polar bear encounters. The level of our advice has not changed. Exercise normal safety precautions in Norway." There are polar bears on Svalbard. But Norway seems to think the advice was about their mainland. Why the disconnect? Is there a case of hyper-sensitivity here?

14 Bbrhuft A pupil on a school trip to the Norwegian Island of Svalbard was killed by a Polar Bear in 2011. That why the Norwegian tweet said **mainland**.
