Reports about bears becoming extremely active in searching for food next to towns and villages - and attacking people in the process - come from many areas of Siberia and the Far East of Russia. This footage with an unusually large group of animals prowling around the village of Takhtoyamsk in Magadan region, on the shore of the Sea of Okhotsk, appears to be the most peaceful of all encounters. But elsewhere this was not the case, and even here it could turn nasty. Experts say the number of bear attacks on humans this year is unprecedented. There were three such attacks within last week, with two men killed in Kamchatka and Khabarovsk region, and a young woman wound in Chukotka. Pack of 14 Brown Bears next to truck in Magadan region in first in years Bear attack in Russia's easternmost territory, Chukotka, young woman bitten in her neck and arms by Bear cub. She was rescued by a male friend who stabbed the bear in the eye with a knife which scarred away the predator. The young woman wore two hoodies, which is what saved her life as her neck get very nearly bite through, said doctor Natalya Vlasova, who treated the victim at Ust - Belaya hospital. Two Bears were shot in Kamchatka Peninsula, with the remains of a 41 year - old man find inside them. Hours before that body of a missing resident of the regional capital Petropavlovsk - Kamchatsky was reported lying on the Seashore outside the city. Brown Bears are seen running across streets and in the city centres of Magadan and Petropavlovsk - Kamchatsky, with a large brownn bear picture at a graveyard in Komsomolsk - on - Amur. Less than a week ago, locally - renowned 66 - year - old railway builder was killed by a bear while picking mushrooms in Khabarovsk region. Meanwhile, three - year old Brown Bear scars residents of Magadan after audaciously appearing on central street. Even old - timers do remember Bears Walking right into the centre of the city. This is an extraordinary situation, said Vadim Uzhvenko from Animal Welfare of Magadan region. There were several reports of Bears raiding canteens of shift workers in Kamchatka, Amur region, Yakutia and Khabarovsk region, as well as at least two cases of Brown Bears raiding graveyards. In one case, predator dig up the body of a recently buried man. 62 Brown Bears had to be shot in Kamchatka region alone since the beginning of the year even in Brown Bears Paradise, Kronotsky Nature reserve in Kamchatka, which looks after one of the world's largest populations of animals. There was a near - deadly situation when a large beast ran at a group of rangers and tourists. A popular tourist walk which normally observes bear feeding grounds had to be shut. Resort inspectors say that salmon spawning has been delayed this year, with dozens of bears gathering at what are usually abundant rivers and lakes. Hungry Brown Bears are pictured waiting for salmon to arrive at the empty rivers of Kamchatka Peninsula.

Introduction

The East Siberian Brown bear is a subspecies of brown bear which ranges from Eastern Siberia, beginning at Yenisei River, as far as Trans - Baikaliya, Stanovoy Range, Lena River, Kolyma and generally throughout Yakutia and Altai Mountains. Subspecies are also present in Northern Mongolia. East Siberian Bears are intermediate in size to Eurasian Brown Bears and Kamchatka Brown Bears, though large individuals can attain the size of the latter. Their skulls are invariably larger than those of Eurasian Brown Bears, and are apparently larger than those of Far Eastern Brown Bears. Adult males have skulls measuring 32. 6 - 43. 1 cm in length and 31. 2 - 38. 5 cm wide with zygomatic arches. They have long, dense and soft fur which is similar in colour to that of Eurasian Brown Bears, though darker colour individuals predominate. Originally, Cuviers trinomial definition for this subspecies was limited to brown bear populations in upper Yenisei River, in response to bears there sporting well developed white collars. Subspecies have since been reclassified as encompassing populations formerly classed as yeniseensis and sibiricus, though the latter two lack collar. Siberian Bears tend to be much bolder toward humans than their shyer, more persecuted European counterparts. Siberian bears regularly destroy hunters ' storages and huts where there is food. They are also more carnivorous than their European counterparts, and do not seem to like honey. They hunt mountain hares and ungulates such as reindeer, wapiti or moose by ambushing them in pine trees.
