Two bear cubs froze to death, when their mother was woken up by ‘ drunks ‘ who threatened the bear with a chain saw, which forced the family to leave their den.
Cubs were discovered by hunting experts who patrolled a forest in Far East Russia’s Anuchinsky district.
The poor cubs were neglected by their mother who got frightened by a group of woodcutters. Police confirmed the identities of the men who were harassing the bear but did not announce their details.
An administrative inquiry was launched for the incident however, It is uncertain as how many people were accountable for the creatures being upset. Several of the residents familiar with the situation had spoken to the website of VladNews and said the woodcutters were being intoxicated.
According to the source, After cutting wood, the guys just got tired, and took a walk around the park’.
According to the sources, the suspects came across a den when they finished cutting wood, and figured out that the waking up of the bear would be a great idea.
At first, they didn’t succeed in waking the bear, but somehow the mother bear woke up, she came out and attacked them in a brutal way.The people however used a chainsaw in order to defend themselves they also tried kill the bear that fled from the location.
Dmitry Pankratov of the regional wildlife management, security, and regulation department told the Siberian Times that the mother bear endured the encounter.
He further informed that, ‘ We confirm that their mother, who got scared by the woodcutters, abandoned those two cubs.
‘ Mother bear is alive, but she has never returned to the shelter’.
Such acts are highly condemn-able as poor cubs lost their lives and their mother had to leave them and their shelter as well.
