Singer Michael Bublé recalls close brush with polar bears on Canadian beach

 January 17, 2024

While Michael Bublé's singing ability is well known, the 43-year-old musician recently made headlines for a far more ominous reason.

According to Fox News, Bublé recently spoke about how he nearly met a horrifying death on a beach in Canada. 

"We were running to our certain death"

During an interview on "The Kelly Clarkson Show," Bublé explained that a man stopped him from running into some polar bears after attending a party with Canadian actor Barry Pepper.

"[He was] literally swearing at us and just screaming… I mean screaming bloody murder," Bublé told host Kelly Clarkson.

"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," he continued.

Clarkson agreed that polar bears have a deceptively innocuous appearance, saying, "They're beautiful. Yeah, and [in] those Coca-Cola commercials, they're like, 'Snuggle.'"

"Yeah, but they will eat you," Bublé was quick to add. "Sometimes I wonder about that, how close I was to being like a little polar bear lunch."

Polar bear kills Alaska woman and her young son, tries to enter school

The Associated Press reported in January of last year that a polar bear killed a woman and her one-year-old son in Wales, Alaska, which is located just 50 miles from the maritime border with Russia.

The bear also attempted to enter a school before it was ultimately shot by a local resident. Susan Nedza serves as chief administrator for the Bering Strait School District, and she called the situation "terrifying."

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.

A pamphlet published by the agency cautions that "[c]lose proximity to bears may lead to the injury or death of people or bears."

Wayward polar bear turns up 200 miles north of Maine

While usually found in Arctic regions, polar bears have been known to wander far outside of their normal range, with one turning up last year just 200 miles north of Maine.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reported that the bear entered the town of Madeleine-Centre in April of 2023.

The bear was killed following an aerial search after wildlife officials determined that the animal could not be safely relocated to its native habitat.
