Polar bear pops up 200 miles inland from Arctic Ocean

It wasn’t your usual grizzly bear sighting for residents of Fort McPherson, on the Dempster Highway, late last week. This white-coated visitor had traveled almost 200 miles into town from the Arctic Ocean. When it arrived, the big, burly polar bear became an instant celebrity — and the snapshot of a lifetime for some lucky tourists.
