Experts record an unprecedented invasion of bears in the Nikolaev region of the Khabarovsk Territory. The Kosolapykhs were seen in private farmsteads and the territory of a kindergarten, they even destroyed the new cemetery of the district center. Hunting experts have received permission to shoot animals.
Residents of the village of Krasnoe videotaped how a brown predator ravages their greenhouse with vegetables. The footage shows how the family is fleeing, having heard that the intruder is not alone here.
- There is the third one, let's get out of here! These are small.
Another owner of the forest destroyed 7 graves at a nearby cemetery in Nikolaevsk-on-Amur. According to experts, the 2-year-old bear was lured to the churchyard by smells. The staff of the funeral agency has already begun to restore the burials.
"This year, for the first time in Nikolaevsk-on-Amur, a bear climbed into a cemetery. This has never happened before!"
"There is no option here to take and release them into the taiga. Bears constantly cause damage and pose a danger to local residents," explained Yuri Kolpak, head of the department of the hunting committee of the Ministry of Natural Resources of the region.
It should be noted that it may take several days from the moment of meeting with a predator in a settlement until obtaining permission to shoot. First, it is necessary to write a written application to the district administration of the district, after which the head of the district must redirect it to the regional Ministry of Natural Resources. Until the request is satisfied, it can take up to three days, and during this time the bear can be 200 km from the previous place.
The district administration has already sent six requests for shooting to the specialists of the regional Ministry of Natural Resources. Experts set up an ambush for the bears. However, until the dangerous predators have been eliminated, local residents are advised not to go out in the evening and carry false weights with them.
