Bears wake up in the Baikal National Park

Bears wake up in the Baikal National Park

The press service of the "Reserved Baikal Region" on the Vkontakte social network reported that the message about the bear came from employees of the Circum-Baikal Railway. They noticed a predator on the mountainside near the stop point "Perezd". The official tourist route of the Baikal National Park runs next to this place.

Last weekend, the release of the first bears was also noted in the Shelekhovsky and Irkutsk districts adjacent to the national park. Experts note that for the second decade of March, the rise of these predators from their dens in this area is not an exception, but rather a long-standing rule.

"Experts do not exclude the appearance of a predator near the settlements of the Circum-Baikal Railway, since currently the animals are in need of food and do not mind profiting from food waste. But if the warm weather in the region persists and the snow quickly disappears, then the bears will lose interest in villages and camp sites: they will be attracted by the first greenery on wild slopes," the message says.
