Brainteaser #1 – What Colour Was The Bear?

Camping under the night sky

I left my tent and walked south for one mile. Then, I turned east and walked for one mile. Then, I turned north and walked for one mile, at which point I found a bear stealing food from inside my tent!

What colour was the bear?

White! The only place you can walk south, then east, then north and end up at your starting point is the North Pole. It’s a polar bear in your tent!
