First, a polar bear chased several humans into an Alaskan town. Then he attacks two people. He does not survive the attack.
A polar bear attacked and killed two people in western Alaska. According to initial reports, the animal first stalked several people in Wales and then fatally injured a woman and a young man, according to a police statement on Tuesday (local time). One of the local residents finally shot the bear. More details were not known at first. Police and government officials wanted to travel to the area on the West Coast of the United States “as soon as weather conditions permit.”
According to the Anchorage Daily News, such attacks are extremely rare in the northern state of the United States. In 1990, a polar bear killed a man in the town of Point Laye, about 500 kilometers north of Wales. In 1993, an animal broke through a window at an Air Force radar station and seriously injured a 55-year-old man. Due to the melting of sea ice as a result of climate change, animals are increasingly living on the mainland, making encounters with humans more likely.
