    The bear grabs the gun, bites it in two and spits the bits back at him.

    The hunter breaks the land speed record as he runs away one kilometre east.

    He then walks one kilometre north and arrives back at his base camp where he changes into some claen underwear.

    What colour was the bear and why?

    Green. The hunter had bought a paint gun by accident.

    Correct!

    First the hunter walks 1km south, but then when he runs 1 km east, this would just take him around in a little arc (of radius 1km) around the North pole. Finally he just needs to walk 1km north to bring him back to the north pole again!

    Therefore the bear must be a polar bear - so it's white!

    Nice one!

    Green - the hunter was hallucinating, and I like the colour green.

    Now, now. Mouldy ursines have no place in polite company. However, I suppose that that is not the particular hue you have in mind, nor would I consider this company particularly polite
