'The people are scared': Polar bears move in on Russian Arctic settlements

Alarm sounded as polar bears'invade Russian Arctic archipelago Polar bears are recognised as an endangered species in Russia and hunting them is banned

An emergency has been declared on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in Russia's Arkhangelsk region.

Since December past year, 52 polar bears have visited the archipelago's main settlement, Belushya Guba, with six to 10 remaining in the village and some displaying "aggressive behaviour", local official Alexander Minaev said in a report to authorities.

'Parents are wary of letting children to go to schools and kindergartens, ' he made clear.

Polar bears went on a rampage in a Russian village.

Local officials complained that measures to scare off polar bears such as vehicle and dog patrols have not been effective as polar bears feel secure and no longer react.

Musin's deputy, Alexander Minayev, said the bears were exhibiting "aggressive behavior", including "attacks on people and entering residential homes and public buildings", the AFP news agency reported.

Zhigansha Musin, a local official who's lived in the area since 1983, said he'd never witnessed such a large influx of polar bears.

Polar bears are plagued by local weather commerce and are extra and additional forced on to land to see meals.

She accessorised her look with white gloves which featured long tassels falling from the garments. This is Grande's first Grammy . "Trust I tried and still truly wished it had worked".

"They are staying [near the main settlement of Belushya Guba] because there is some alternative food".

Polar bears in Russian Federation are classed as an endangered species.

While Russia considers them endangered and their hunting is banned, the animals have been increasingly causing trouble to thousands of people.

Polar bears have been affected by global warming and the melting of the Arctic, forcing them to spend more time off the ice to look for food.

Despite the growing threat from polar bear aggression, the country's environmental watchdog has ruled against using firepower to bring the situation under control.

"The decision to declare an emergency situation on the territory of Novaya Zemlya from February 9 was taken at a meeting of the commission tasked to prevent emergencies and ensure fire safety", says a statement from the region's government released on Saturday.

They dispute that if wrong approach to dread off the bears fail a cull might well perhaps be the one resolution.

Novaya Zemlya, which has a population of about 3,000, has called on Russian federal authorities to assist it in combating the "a mass invasion of polar bears into inhabited areas".
