What they DON'T tell you on that article, is how they dealt with the bear.
The bear was quickly shot and killed. Then, the crew of the Connecticut surfaced and began occupation of the bear's general living area. The occupation is temporary, with the intent to establish a more peaceful, friendly, and less threatening Alpha Bear to rule over the other bears in the area, who desperately needed our help very badly to escape the regime of this oppressive Polar Evil.
The control of the oil resources in the area falls to the highest bidder. France has condemned the occupation.
