Camden resident Dr. Richard Bell thinks that Polar Bears are amazing creatures. "My fascination with Polar Bears began when I was in college in a biochemistry class," said Bell who attended Centre College of Kentucky. In that class, Bell learned how Polar Bears can eat very little during their seven to eight month hibernation and survive.
