Do you know anything about that??? it didn't state what year this happened and I didn't catch the name of the town. Any truth to it??
I've heard nothing of the sort! And especially about "twenty bears that invaded a mining town". Where is this information from?
The cases of polar bears visit in villages occur sometimes, but not such numbers.

It was either National Geographic or Discovery channel documentary on bears of Russia and Alaska. Showed a Russian town, the people and homes the bears had supposedly entered and trashed looking for food. Supposedly the bears where stalking the miners. What we found questionable was the fact that they stated and showed an American that was supposedly brought in to shoot the bears. It stated that he killed 2 bears and the others left the area???!! Will try to search on the internet and see if I can find any more about it. We started watching it about 15 minutes after it aired so we didn't catch the name of the town but they claimed it was a Russian Mining town.

aahhh I found it!!
Discovery's Bear Attack (http://alaskadirt.blogspot.com/2009/04/discovers-bear-attack.html - broken link)

Labels: anchorage (http://alaskadirt.blogspot.com/search/label/anchorage - broken link), bears (http://alaskadirt.blogspot.com/search/label/bears - broken link), discovery channel (http://alaskadirt.blogspot.com/search/label/discovery%20channel - broken link)

If you can catch it, the Discovery Channel has an excellent documentary - "Bear Attack" -- on last summer's string of bear attacks in Anchorage. The documentary examines the three attacks, how Fish and Game tracks bears, and why the attacks might have occurred (late salmon run). It also compares the attacks to brutal killings in the Russian town of Kamchatka where bears began tracking humans as they faced starvation. Rick Sinnott is featured extensively. What is suprising is just how long bears are spending right in the middle of the suburbs. Listings are found here.

Polar bears come in Schmidt (little town of Chukotka) mostly. There are no polar bears in Kamchatka. There are brown bears there. Kamchatka is located far to the south of Chukotka.

Thanks! I have read the article. It describes the case of an invasion of brown bears in Kamchatka. It is not our region, which is located south of Chukotka. This is the same as that in the United States another State.

just wondering see the job your in if you knew about this supposed bear issue. They are claiming it is going to be a wide spread problem of starving bears seeking humans as food if we don't do something about people over fishing salmon in Russia and Alaska.

I think firstly it is not "wide spread problem of starving bears seeking humans as FOOD". Second, this isolated case does not belong to the Chukotka. And I would like to clarify that when we talk about Russia, we have to say about the United States. If, however, about Alaska, we need to refer to Chukotka. To compare Russia to Alaska, at least not correctly.
