Polar Bear That Killed Teen May Have Had Toothache

(AFP) - The polar bear that killed a British teenager 11 days ago in the Norwegian Arctic may have attacked because he was suffering from a toothache, Norway's veterinary institute said Tuesday.

While examining the 550-pound (250-kilogram) male shot and killed after attacking the campsite of 13 people, the institute discovered that several of the bear's teeth were "very damaged" before the attack.

"Under two of the canines and many of the incisors, the nerves were exposed. This causes serious pain and changes the behavior of bears,
" Bjoernar Ytrehus, the veterinarian who examined the bear's head, said in a statement.

The damage to the teeth suggests the bear was old, sick or injured and therefore forced to eat vegetables rather than seals, a polar bear's normal prey. Eating vegetables may have caused the damage to the teeth.

"This could be a factor that contributed to the attack," Ytrehus said.

"Starving and suffering, a bear is more unpredictable and aggressive than normal."

Travelling with a British Schools Exploring Society expedition, the 13 people were camped on the Von Postbreen glacier on Spitsbergen, north of the Norwegian mainland.

The bear killed Horatio Chapple, 17, and injured four other members of the group.

The father of one of the injured boys previously told the BBC that some of the bear's teeth were embedded in his son's skull during the attack and had to be removed.

According to Norway's TV2, it was the first deadly polar bear attack in the Svalbard archipelago since 1995.

Still not an excuse for having a sub-standard level of common sense.
