(WFLA/CNN Newsource) – Authorities in Russia are trying to help out a young polar bear.

The bear, who is about 2-years-old, has been seen wandering around an area near the coast of the Bering Sea, looking thin and exhausted.

People have been giving him fish, which he’s eating.

Local media reports government officials could be transporting him, by air, to northern areas.

Scientists believe that the bear arrived to the peninsula after being stranded on a chunk of ice from the Bering Sea.
