Singer Michael Bublé explains how he was almost eaten by polar bears

 January 18, 2024

While musician Michael Bublé is known for his laid-back songs, the musician recently recounted an incident that was nothing short of horrifying.

According to the Daily Caller, Bublé told fellow crooner Kelly Clarkson how he narrowly escaped a vicious attack by polar bears.

"We didn’t realize, we were running to our certain death"

Bublé explained that he was running on a Canadian beach with actor Barry Pepper when a man began shouting that there were polar boars ahead.

"[He was] literally swearing at us and just screaming… I mean screaming bloody murder," Bublé recalled. "We didn’t realize, we were running to our certain death."

"Because there were polar bears all down the beach. And yes, they’re the most aggressive — but God, they’re so cuddly," the musician continued.

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service says polar bears are the Arctic's "top predators"

Clarkson concurred that polar bears appear far less ominous than they are, stating, "They're beautiful. Yeah, and [in] those Coca-Cola commercials, they're like, 'Snuggle.'"

However, Bublé was quick to point out that the marine animals "will eat you," adding, "Sometimes I wonder about that, how close I was to being like a little polar bear lunch."

Bublé's concern about becoming a meal appears to be well founded, as the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service describes polar bears as being the "top predators in the Arctic marine ecosystem" with a diet that includes seals, walruses, and beluga whales.

What's more, a pamphlet put out by the federal agency cautions that "[c]lose proximity to bears may lead to the injury or death of people or bears."

Alaska woman and her young son killed in polar bear attack

An example of that danger was seen in January of last year when a polar bear killed a woman as well as her 1-year-old son in Wales, Alaska before it was shot by a local resident.

The Associated Press reported that the polar bear also attempted to enter a school but was thwarted by its principal, a situation which Bering Strait School District chief administrator Susan Nedza described as being "terrifying."

Polar bears can occasionally roam far outside their normal range, with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reporting that one turned up just 200 miles north of Maine in April of 2023.

The animal at one point wandered into a southern Quebec town and was ultimately killed after wildlife experts determined that it could not be safely relocated.
