Good news, there are no polar bears in Antarctica. Closing as unfortunately not useful to future travellers. –  Mark Mayo Jun 19 '12 at 6:46
    
I would rather edit this question to correct name error than close it. Funny comments OK. –  РСТȢѸФХѾЦЧШЩЪЫЬѢѤЮѦѪѨѬѠѺѮѰѲѴ Jun 19 '12 at 7:58
    
It's welcomed for the OP to edit a question and flag for reopening - we would be happy to consider them. –  Mark Mayo Jun 19 '12 at 16:31

In fact not only the OP is allowed to edit the question. But just changing Antarctic to Arctic wouldn't be enough to save this particular question - in fact it would do better on great-outdoors.SE but would also need to be a lot more specific to fit the "one good answer" requirement of SE. –  hippietrail Jun 19 '12 at 18:21
    
@KMC, Toni Frankola, lechlukasz. As hippietrail points out there's still a bit of work to be done. It's also not a travel problem as such - more an outdoors problem. KMC, you flagged this stating it's not a joke and that you do indeed plan to visit Antarctica but worry about polar bears. This is after we've already told you there are NO polar bears there? Really? Are you sure you mean Antarctica (south pole area) and not maybe the Arctic (north pole) where polar bears actually exist? If so we can edit it to that and reopen or migrate. –  Mark Mayo Jun 20 '12 at 6:14

There are no Polar Bears in Antarctica, except for at Zoos.

There are also no Zoos in Antarctica.

So all up, you're pretty safe.

Yes going to Antarctica is possibly one of the very best ways to avoid attack from a polar bear. –  hippietrail Jun 19 '12 at 18:19

How about penguins disguised as polar bears? –  DJClayworth Jun 21 '12 at 0:00

There's no polar bears in Antarctica now, but who's to say they won't get there before he does? :) –  Benjol Feb 14 '13 at 14:51
