2 "human-eating" bears killed a fisherman in the Kamchatka region of Russia.

The man was fishing on the coast of Krasheninnikova Bay near his village, Vilyuchinsk, when he was attacked and killed by the two brown bears. Armed policemen discovered one of the bears, an 80 kg, 1.5 year old male, near the body, and shot it to death

Such a shame, cute little guy... from here at least. I guess... when you are unarmed and that thing is coming at you with claws and teeth... not so much lol

Anyway, in 2011, were three fatal bear-on-human attacks on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Egers (forest rangers) had to shoot dead 50 bears who were determined to be aggressive enough to pose danger to people.

Which gives you an idea who is getting the worse of it: 3 dead people vs. 50 dead bears... Well... That's the Canadian in me talking. People here in BC hate when somebody shoots our bears. :smiley-shrug:

But, those Kamchatka bears are dangerous, God knows. From back in 2008

Man-eating bears kill two scientists and lay siege to survivors trapped in remote forest base

At least 30 hungry bears have trapped a group of geologists at their remote survey site in the far east of Russian after killing two of their colleagues last week, emergency officials said.

The team of geologists on the Kamchatka Peninsula were forced to remain in camp with weapons ready as the ravenous bears - some ten feet tall - roamed around outside.

The bears are thought to have run out of their normal diet of fish and smaller animals - and to have turned instead to hunting humans.
