PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, May 13 (Itar-Tass) — A resident of the town of Vilyuchinsk, a town of submariners in the Russia Far East, has been torn to pieces by two wild bears. The tragedy occurred 400 meters away from the nearest house on the bank of the Krasheninnikov Bay, the press service of the Russian Interior Ministry branch for the Kamchatka territory, reported on Sunday.
The man’s dead body was found of the bay’s shore at around 23:00 local time on May 12. A policeman shot one of the beasts while the second bear managed to escape. A bear that has once attacked a human will be dangerous for people. A search for the bear has been launched. This is the first human death in bear’s claws this year. Hunters killed another aggressive bear in April this year.
Kamchatka brown bears are one of the biggest species in the whole family. A grown-up male can weigh 700 kilograms. Its body length can reach three meters.
Bears often show their wild temper. Many encounters with bears end tragically for humans. Brown bears killed three people in 2011. Foresters had to shoot about 50 beasts whose aggressive behavior was an open threat to people’s safety.
Experts believe that bears visit humans to make a feast of leftovers which people throw into garbage containers. They’ve called on the local residents to refrain from provoking the beasts.
