Dorset polar bear mystery revealed – it turned out to be a badger

For the past year several people in Dorset County encountered a strange animal. It had a white fur and was rumoured to be a small polar bear (which is of course not possible). A photographer called Colin Varndell finally revealed the mystery by being able to take photos of the animal. It turned out to just be a badger. The rare albino badger managed to avoid any attempts to be tracked. The badger finally got photographed and it should be said that it is a small bear animal, nocturnal in habit.
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.


  1. Well, you really cannot blame people if they called it as a polar bear. It looks like one.
