After our charter flight from Winnipeg to Churchill
, we had a short bus ride out to the Polar Bear Jail. This is where they keep the "naughty"
Polar Bears that get too close to town and which could eventually result in undesirable human-bear interaction. They are humanely trapped and put in jail (officially called the Polar Bear Rehabilitation Center)
and are released after the Hudson Bay has frozen over and then they naturally head North away from Churchill. However, the jail does fill to capacity;
"Do not pass Go, Do not collect $200"
... so periodic Polar Bear relocations are made via helicopter.
