In March 2015 this 2,5 year old female polar bear was hunting actively in Tempelfjorden, east of Longyearbyen. She was very successful, and in the photo she is captured while protecting her seal prey, as the setting sun lit up the background. Four days after this photo was taken, the curiosity got the better of her and she ended up in a tourist tent close to Fredheim. The tourist had not taken the precautions needed and ended up shooting and killing the young female. Roy Mangersnes took this photograph, which is one of the last taken of this beautiful animal.
