Dorset polar bear mystery revealed – it turned out to be a badger
Mr Varndell admitted that people have known about it for months. The first person to see it was a policeman and he described the animal as a small polar bear. Floodlights were used to take the pictures as Colin did not want to startle the badger. It is a very rare animal because of its sandy-colored fur, and Colin spent four nights waiting for the badger to take these pictures.
