In the Russian city of Kamchatka, a bear attacked two tourists, one of them fought off the animal with a bicycle. The video of the incident, taken from the car DVR, was published by the Kam 24 news agency.
According to the information of the regional institution “Wildlife Protection Service”, the video was shot in the region of the 108th kilometer of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky-Milkovo highway. Information about the incident arrived at the agency last Friday evening, June 12.
The footage shows how a young bear rushes at a Russian, he is protected by a bicycle. The author of the video begins to honk and drives up to the animal, thereby scaring him. The cyclist begins to throw stones at the bear. Together, people manage to drive away the predator after a few minutes.
Hunters tracked the animal the next day. Since the beast was aggressive, he had to be shot. The male was about three to four years old, he was extremely well-fed, which, according to experts, is strange for this time of year. The huntsmen believe that the locals fed the bear. “The predator got used to people, and getting used to getting food, over time it began to aggressively demand food. This is probably why the bear attacked cyclists, ”the institution explained.
The employees of the "Wildlife Protection Service" thanked the participants in the events for timely reporting of the incident, as this allowed to quickly eliminate the dangerous animal.

Kindhearted Man Buys Expensive Stolen Bike So He Could Search for Its Original Owner on Social Media
A kindhearted English man is being praised for his kindness after he bought an expensive stolen bike for £80 ($104) solely so he could return it to its original owner.
Burke was contacted by a woman who knew the bike’s owner; it had belonged to a man whose house had been burgled earlier that very same week. Since the man had saved up more than £1350 of his own money to buy the bike the previous year, he was overwhelmed with gratitude for its return.
The man tried to reimburse Burke for the £80, but he refused, telling reporters that he “didn’t feel right taking money off a man who has just had his house burgled.”
