From the Siberian Occasions right this moment (20 October) is a narrative with few information however a superb video of six fats adults and 4 fats cubs as they set siege to a stalled open rubbish truck within the Russian Arctic. It might have been filmed on Novaya Zemlya however that has not been confirmed.
In fact, Novaya Zemlya has had earlier issues with bears habituated to rubbish, most famously an prolonged incident in 2019 that was perversely blamed on local weather change.
There have been two households that I may see within the video: a feminine with two cubs-of-the-year and one other with two yr previous cubs. All had been in glorious situation, as had been the opposite 4 adults. Novaya Zemlya, if certainly that is the place the incident passed off, is between the Barents and Kara Seas (see under):
From the Siberian Occasions story:
The video from an unidentified location within the Russian Arctic was shared by a driver who occurred to be on the identical highway because the damaged garbage truck. The truck’s army quantity plate suggests it may have been filmed on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, however The Siberian Occasions couldn’t verify it. 4 massive bears are filmed climbing contained in the truck one after the opposite, because the cubs look on.
Different grownup bears are seen operating in direction of it.
