A shopping centre has apologised to customers after a Christmas display depicted polar bears enjoying anal sex.

The Tynwald Mills shopping centre on the Isle of Man believed they were getting into the Christmas and set up their display in the run-up to the festive season.

However, shoppers were left shocked and amused after part of the display featured model of two polar bears – one of its hind legs in front of another on all fours.

Many took to social media to express the humour behind the sexual position and although it was not reported as a negative display, the polar bears have since been separated and rearranged in a less suggestive position.

A spokesperson for Tynwald Mills wrote: “We’d like to thank our customers for getting a little too into Christmas this year with our Polar Bears in the atrium and can reassure you the display has changed somewhat since setup.

“Apologies to anybody offended by our somewhat interactive display. #nightattheshoppingcentre #naughtybear.”

The Tynwald Mills rep added: “The polar bears have had a talking to, and our severe case of ‘Night at the Museum’ hopefully won’t repeat itself! ”
