Killer Shots: Tracking the Ghost Bear

Killer Shots: Tracking the Ghost Bear
Andy Casagrande ventures to the frozen Canadian wilderness, not once, not twice, but THREE times to get his shot. His mission is to locate and film one of the most elusive and dangerous predators on earth — the polar bear. They are enormous creatures, standing 5 feet tall on all fours and weighing up to 1,600 pounds, but notoriously elusive. In fact, so elusive that Andy had to use every method available, including helicopters, snowmobiles and dogsleds, to traverse the vast, frozen land.
