Hungry Polar Bears Invaded a Russian Town

Russian islands declare emergency over polar bear `invasion`

The government chose to send specialists on the islands after officials in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, with a population of about 3,000 people, sought help.

Regional authorities in Russian Federation declared a state of emergency over the weekend after the bears peered into homes, entered buildings and gorged at a rubbish dump outside the town. They are frightened to leave homes and their daily routines are broken. "Parents are afraid to let the children go to school or kindergarten", the statement added.

But it is a terrifying sight for residents of an island town in Russian Federation because the bears have invaded their town. As sea ice diminishes, polar bear feeding grounds decline, meaning the wild predators may seek out food elsewhere - like human garbage dumps.

Russian Islands is in a state of high alert after a group of more than 50 polar bears invaded the region.

"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. But these measures seemed to have only worked as a temporary solution because the polar bears keep returning.

The state of emergency was declared on Saturday.

Over 50 bears would not react to light and noise signals and attempts to drive them away with the help of cars and dogs, and there are no other ways to drive away the animals safely - the polar bear is listed in the global and Russian Red List. Geoff York, senior director of the non-profit Polar Bears International said that polar bear attics are relatively rare but he notes that when polar bears and humans exist close together the risk of conflict will increase.

Authorities in Russia's remote Arctic archipelago of Novaya Zemlya have taken measures to chase away a band of polar bears that had established a reign of terror over locals in recent days.

The head of the local administration Zhigansha Musin said that the numbers of polar bears were unprecedented. The island is located in east of Novaya Zemlya. The bears had no fear of signals used to scare them off as well as of patrol cars and dogs.
