A steady stream of cars are lining up to see two polar bears who reside in the frozen harbour of Newfoundland's small community of Embree. Initially the bears created so much of a stir, that startled drivers were slamming their brakes to get a better look at the mother and cub. The bears, although they look realistic from a distance, certainly are not.
In fact, the bears are something that Red Green
and the folks up at Possum Lodge would be immensely proud of. Composed of a month's work, nearly 50 rolls of packing tape, plastic, and wood, the bears really are a bit of a masterpiece. Their creator, Edward Collins, likens them to yard art and says that he made them in order to give the small town with a population of nearly 900 "something to talk about". Indeed, it has.
That's right Edward, if the women don't find you handsome
, they should at least find you handy! (audio)Keep your stick on the ice
