Remarkable images of polar bears paddling with children have been released to help reduce hunting of the enormous beasts. The carnivores loom over their bite-size pool companions in what looks like an imminent disaster, but there is more to the situation than meets the eye. The optical illusion is created at a Canadian holiday resort where children are encouraged to swim with the world’s largest land predator. All that separates them is a 25cm (10in) thick sheet of glass installed by bosses at Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat near Ontario.
