Russian Town Chases Out Rowdy Polar Bear Invaders

Russian Town Chases Out Rowdy Polar Bear Invaders

"With Arctic sea ice diminishing as a result of climate change, polar bears are forced to change their hunting habits and spend more time on land looking for food", a BBC reporter wrote, "which potentially puts them in conflict with humans".

A state of emergency has been declared at Novaya Zemlya archipelago located in the Arctic Ocean in Arkhangelsk region of northern Russian Federation because of a weird reason and it is the invasion of polar bears in human settlements.

People are "afraid to go outside" and "daily life is in turmoil", said the deputy head of the local administration, Aleksandr Minayev.

The residents of the Russian town of Belushya Guba have been left terrorised after 52 polar bears are known to have entered the area. The specialists will remove these polar bears from the human settlements after sedating them.

Authorities have declared a state of emergency over the influx in bears, which have foraged through homes and reportedly attacked people as they roam through the village, per CNN.

"We've seen definite trends in certain parts of the Arctic where polar bears are congregating we have not seen before", Elizabeth Kruger of the World Wildlife Foundation told NBC News.

Rapper Rich The Kid has been robbed and shot at outside a studio where Usher Raymond was recording in West Hollywood California. This famous studio has been home to recording artists such as Rihanna , Justin Bieber , Michael Jackson , and Madonna .

"There are constantly 6 to 10 bears inside the settlement", he said.

The authorities declared an emergency after a few of them managed to find their way into the homes of locals and plans for their extraction are apparently in place.

Stories careening around the web over the past few days have sounded the alarm about an "invasion" of polar bears on an archipelago at the northern reaches of Russian Federation.

"More than five animals would not leave the garrison, literally chasing people and even entering the residential houses", said the head of the Novaya Zemlya administration Zhiganshi Musina.

An expert says the polar bears are moving to other areas because of melting ice caused by global warming.

Another local official, Zhigansha Musin, said he has has been on the island since 1983 and never seen such a large influx of the beasts. But polar bears are endangered, and there are laws banning people from killing them.
