A man came face-to-face with a inquisitive polar bear when it pressed its paws and nose against his car window. Raymond Yue, a hairdresser, was left stunned with the six-foot white bear crept up to his truck and peeked through the glass in the town of Churchill in northern Manitoba, Canada.
The 43-year-old, who took photographs of the fluffy creature, said: "I was sitting in my truck when I spotted the polar bear walking beside our window. It was only a young bear, and it was very interested in exploring the vehicle next to mine."
And it wasn't just the people the polar bear, which is known for hunting seals, seemed interested in as he also had a go at sniffing around the car's tyre rim.
Raymond explained: "The bear spent a few minutes sniffing around the tyres, before popping up at the driver's window to take a look inside. A lot of people that see the photographs are concerned that we were in danger, with only a piece of glass between us and the bear."
