This week shocking scenes are coming from Chukotka. Polar bears took the whole village for a hostage. More than 50 bears gathered near the polar village of Ryrkaipiy, where several hundred people live. The Chukchi Sea still didn’t really freeze, and the bears cannot leave on the ice to hunt for a sea animal. They came too close to apartment buildings in a search of food. What next to do, our correspondent Nikita Bereznyakov reports. Unusually warm weather for the beginning of December was established in the area of Cape Kozhevnikov. In addition, strong winds disperse not so strong ice. Thin and hungry, adults and young animals, females with cubs of different ages gathered in the vicinity of the village of Ryrkaipiy. According to experts, a total of about 60 individuals. Bears are forced to seek food along the coast, getting closer and closer to people. During the summer, when I was there, up to 27 bears gathered there too. But they just behaved differently. They were scattered and did not cause fear among people. When they came now hungry and with a whole bunch, like piglets near the trough, and gathered around walruses, it seemed like some kind of horror. At the end of summer, a huge rookery of Pacific walruses forms on Cape Kozhevnikov. Sometimes their number reaches tens of thousands. You see that next to me there are dead walruses. Small and big ones, there are on the coast. Predators cannot just pass by with an abundance of food. When the ice is strong, polar bears go far into the sea and prey on seals or sea hares. They are the best hunters in ice water. But now, when they cannot leave the village, they are forced to look for autumn stocks, which are abundant here. The task of volunteers is to drive away predators and remove bear food from the territory of the village, otherwise, there will be even more bear feet. We will now take this walrus and send him away. Every evening, residents of Ryrkarpiya go on patrol. At night, polar bears come to the village in search of food. Bears are coming here. We can see near the school, boarding school, and houses. All social events are canceled. Residents are securing the village with the help of their snow machines. Evening time is the most dangerous. The streets are empty during the night. People are now walking on the streets. Currently, bears are walking there and around the village. Border guards promised to help the residents of the village of Ryrkaipiy. Cartridges and deterrents will be purchased In the near future. According to weather forecasts, durable ice will not be established in this area earlier than two weeks. And only then bears can leave.
