Five people. Ten bears. One desperate call for help.
On a remote Arctic island, five researchers at a weather station found themselves "besieged" by polar bears over the weekend, Russia's TASS news agency reports.
Vadim Plotnikov, the head of the weather station on Troynoy Island, told the news agency on Monday that the staff there had seen 10 adult bears around the station, as well as several cubs.
Two weeks ago, a polar bear ate one of the weather station's two dogs — and hadn't left the station since.
