    What are they putting in Vodka ,

    Experts warned the stunt could affect the animal's ability to blend in with its surroundings and hunt for food.
    An investigation is under way to determine exactly where in Arctic Russia the video was filmed.
    The T-34 was a tank that played a vital role in the Soviet Union's defeat of Nazi Germany in World War Two.

    I wonder if the spray painter survived after getting that close to a polar bear. If that was a standard paint spray can, that looks like a pretty close shot.

    I wonder if massive quantities of Vodka was involved.

    How much vodka does a polar bear drink before it lets someone spray paint it?

    And the vodka could backfire if it's a bi-polar bear!

    I'd bet the bear was sedated prior to the painting, I can't imagine anyone doing that to a fully alert polar bear.

    Maybe he didn't. He could have been trying to write "T-3400000" on the bear.

    Breaking news: polar bear with human blood on its fur plying with a paint can appeared to be intoxicated.
