For the BBC’s new nature documentary “Polar Bear: Spy on the Ice”, producers created a small array of various spy cams to get up close and personal with the animals.

Well, perhaps a little too close. Most of the cams, like “Ice Bear Cam” and “Blizzard Cam” all met untimely ends at the paws (and weight) of these adorable goliaths. Check out the unfortunate destruction in the clip below.

    Somehow that still reminds me of a scene from The Empire Strikes Back. :)

    Brilliant, beautiful animals.

    I watched this the other day – they really hate those. I thought they’d at least just play with them, but nope! The devices that are on ground move super fast. Reminded me of Star Wars. :)

    Happy new year to all of you at ecorazzi – thank you for a great website!!
