"The invasion of huge animals has frightened people," the regional government wrote. After the invasion of 10 polar bears on Saturday, officials announced the introduction of an emergency on the Russian archipelago.
"More than 52 polar bears were spotted near Belushya Guba during two months," a local official, Alexander Minayev told NBC News. The agency also recorded several cases of bears attacking people.
“The locals are frightened. Parents do not allow children to leave home, because polar bears can attack at any time. The invasion of bears and their aggressive behavior were reasons for introducing an emergency,” Minayev added. TASS said the country’s environmental watchdog did not provide a license to kill animals. The agency also said that fences, patrol cars and dogs did not scare the polar bears.
"We are waiting for a group of specialists, who will study the behavior of animals and find a solution," said Alexander Minayev. According to official data, the number of polar bears is only 25 thousand animals. Polar Bears International suggested that attacks on humans would increase as animals spend a lot of time ashore.
