Bear roamed mountain in "Bashkiria" National Park
One of the bears did not hibernate in the "Bashkiria" National Park. Inspectors found the footprints of the clubfoot on Tally Mountain in Nugush. The bear wandered in the snow last week.
The park employees noted that the rest of the bears had already taken to their dens, and the employees did not come across any other footprints. Bears go into hibernation when a stable subzero temperature is established; the ground is covered with snow, water bodies — with ice. This happens in late October — early November and lasts until March, April.
A failure in the mode can occur due to the peculiarities of some bears' appetite, experts said.
"Someone just loves to eat and wanders to the last in search of food. An insomniac bear who has not had time to accumulate enough fat and continue seeking food due to illness or injury can pose a danger throughout the winter. A meeting with him may end tragically," the National Park noted.
