The village is located in the northernmost part of the Arkhangelsk region and is regularly raided by wild animals. Often these are polar bears who occupy landfills and even enter houses.
"Belushya Lipa" is called the village.
It is a small military town with 2,500 inhabitants. Located on Novaya Zemlya (about 1800 km from Moscow), near the habitat of polar bears.
The problem is that these aggressive predators are listed in the Red Book and you cannot get rid of them by force. According to the Wildlife Fund, their population on the planet now numbers only 22,000 - 31,000 individuals.
They are not afraid of anything. They calmly enter buildings and look into the windows, - say local residents.
On footage from the Internet, you can observe how groups of 20-30 animals swarm around in garbage dumps near residential buildings. Unfortunately, such a neighborhood is fraught with human health.
All of this is due to climate change. The ice melts and forces animals to move around the area in search of food. People and predators are increasingly meeting each other.
Local leaders regularly declare a state of emergency and advise people to stay at home if predators approach the village.
