Angry polar bears are terrorizing Russian villagers

Russian Arctic Islands Sound Emergency Over'Invasion By Polar Bears

According to the WWF, the survival and protection of the polar bear habitat are "urgent issues" and their status is listed as vulnerable. The appearance of polar bears in human settlements of the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, which triggered a state of emergency in the region, has been caused by the seasonal migration of animals and available edible waste in the settlements, Ilya Mordvintsev, a lead researcher at the Severtsev Institute of Ecology and Evolution, told TASS.

His deputy said normal life was being disrupted by the threat.

"Parents are wary of letting children go to school and kindergarten".

This included "attacks on people and entering residential homes and public buildings", said Minayev, the deputy chief of the local administration.

Polar bears in Russian Federation are classed as an endangered species.

Though the animals are considered endangered by Russian Federation (the IUCN Red List classifies them as "vulnerable", with a decreasing population), officials said that if non-lethal means fail to drive the bears away, they may be forced to cull the animals, the BBC added.

Searching the bears is banned, and the federal atmosphere agency has refused to subject licences to shoot them.

Two polar bears walk in the snow in their enclosure at Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna, Austria, on March 6, 2018.

With Arctic sea ice diminishing because local weather commerce, polar bears are forced to commerce their wanting habits and employ beyond regular time on land having a see meals - which doubtlessly locations them in battle with other folks.

According to the BBC, officials said that the bears no longer fear either police patrols or the signals used to keep them away from humans, and that they have even crossed onto the grounds of the local air defence garrison.

They dispute that if wrong approach to dread off the bears fail a cull might well perhaps be the one resolution. This sometimes puts them at odds with humans.

'In the area of the settlement Belushya Guba, 52 polar bears were spotted, entering the settlement.

Station head Vadim Plotnikov was cited as saying that 10 adult bears and four cubs had surrounded the station.

"Global warming is melting the ice so it has a chain reaction on how polar bears can survive", Liz Greengrass, a director at United Kingdom animal conservation charity Born Free Foundation told CNN in 2018.

The helicopter also airlifted in two dogs to help the scientists keep the bears at bay.
