When wolves hunt large mammals such as reindeer and musk ox,
it is more effective to form a team. So they usually live in packs.

The Polar Bear inhabits the south shore of Hudson Bay. When the ice is formed in winter the bears start moving on the ice for hunting seals.

However bears have to wait longer for the ice, because the temperature has been rising in tundra.
If the temperature continuously rises, their hunting season will be shorter. As the matter of fact, the polar bear is loosing weight.

Churchill is located on the south shore of the Hudson Bay.
The polar bears sometimes come to the residential area for food. So the traps are set to send the polar bears back to their space and avoid any unwanted accidents.

Reindeer

Reindeer’s hoofs change depends on the seasons. Their hoof pads are soft and spread wide in summer, so the reindeer walk easily on the boggy tundra. The hoof pads get harder and hair grows between their toes in winter. That makes reindeer can walk on the slippery surface. Hard hoofs can also break the ice and snow to expose the low-lying plants underneath for foods.
