Bears kill two scientists and lay siege to 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.
