& # 39; Invasion of brown bears & # 39; in the Russian city evokes armed patrols, in which one young animal is shot when it attacked a group of dogs
- Residents of Chersky in the Siberian Arctic have to deal with an invasion of hungry bears
- One bear, less than two years old, was shot after venturing around houses

- The city lies 3,400 miles east of Moscow and was part of the Gulag network of Stalin
A gloomy, former Gulag city in Russia is besieged by voracious brown bears.
One beast was shot after threatening households in Chersky, in the Siberian Arctic, and patrols with armed policemen hunt for other predators.
The remote town with a population of 2,850 represents & # 39; an invasion of brown bears & # 39 ;, said a local report.
A young brown bear had to be shot after attacking people and pets in the polar-like Russian city of Chersky
The bear – who was less than two years old – was killed after he searched the city for food
Vitaly Sokovikov, head of the ecological inspection service of the Nizhnekolymsky district, said that one animal was shot, while another posed an acute threat to the local population.
& # 39; Operational teams have been put together with police officers and ecologists, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; Bears are a major danger for citizens and households. The weather is good now in the neighborhood, people spend a lot of time outside and they go to the forest.
& # 39; All citizens have been warned. & # 39;
The shot-bear came very close to houses, he attacked the dogs. People couldn't leave the houses … & # 39;
Chersky, an arctic city with 2,850 inhabitants (photo), remains alert because of the number of brown bears that are still around
Armed patrols consisting of police officers and ecologists have been established and have already shot a bear after attacking a group of dogs
The official added: & # 39; It became a real danger for the residents …. It was decided to liquidate the animal.
& # 39; The bear was skinny, he came to the settlement because he could not find food elsewhere.
& # 39; This brown bear looked rather young, no more than two years old. & # 39;
Another bear has caused terror in the neighboring Komarok settlement.
& # 39; People have heard him roar and dogs bark, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; This bear is an adult, not less than five years old. He will be killed as soon as he is noticed again. & # 39;
Chersky was established as a gateway to Siberian gold mines and was part of Stalin's & # 39; s network of forced labor camps in the Soviet era
Because of the good weather in Chersky at the moment, people spend a lot of time outside in the woods, where bears pose an immediate threat
Chersky is 3,400 miles and eight time zones east of Moscow.
It was established as a gateway to Siberian gold mines and was part of Stalin's & # 39; s network of forced labor camps in the Soviet era.
The city is close to Pleistocene Park of Siberia, an ecological experiment that reconstructs the northern subarctic steppe grassland ecosystem that flourished in the area during the last ice age.
The park could be woolly mammoths if scientists succeed in bringing the species back to life through genetic cloning of remains preserved in the permafrost in the region.
