“I am thinking the Arctic Sea ice was still intact,” says reader Benjamin Napier.
“Arctic fox astounds scientists by trekking 2,176 miles in 76 days — from Norway to Canada,” headline shouts.
“The young female had been tracked via a GPS device installed by researchers at the Polar Institute in Norway, releasing her into the wild in March 2018, BBC News said.
“Twenty-one days later she had reached Greenland, BBC News said, about 940 miles from her starting point. A mere 76 days after she left Svalbard, the fox was found on Ellesmere Island in Nunavut, Canada.”
This works out to nearly 30 miles per day.

“Ice that covers enough water to traverse that distance? Seems like that would be tough considering the models telling us there is no ice left,” says Paul.
