Polar Bears

As with many animals, polar bear mating rituals involve some violence. Males actually track females, often for distances over 100 kilometres. There are often three males available for each breeding female, and they fight tooth and nail, literally, for her attention. The fights are brutal, though they only rarely result in death. So that’s something.
