Here’s a man who has no fear. As seen on Reddit, this guy came across 12 hungry polar bears in Kaktovik, Alaska and thought it was a good idea to take a pic, because that’s what you do when there’s a dozen hungry bears close by. Luckily, the bears paid no attention to this balls-of-steel man because they were happy scarfing down the remains of a whale harvest on shore.

Kaktovik is a small town with a population just shy of 300 and lies in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. It’s not just polar bears in this area, either. This place is also home to moose, lynx, wolverines, and grizzly bears. And miles of untouched picturesque scenery.
