Polar bears threaten the inhabitants of the village of Ryrkaipiy of the urban district of Egvekinot in Chukotka. Not far from the settlement, over 50 animals have accumulated on Cape Kozhevnikov. The authorities had to organize patrols of the territory with the involvement of police, border guards and volunteers.

According to the press service of the government of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, a similar situation is not the first time. Predators wait until the sea freezes to get to the seal rookery and start hunting for them. At the Institute of Biological Problems of the North, Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, it was noted that clearly emaciated bears were not observed in the group.

The village is currently under patrol. Canceled all social events. Residents are warned about security measures. In the case of the approach of polar bears to the village, they will be scared away with the help of equipment and raised fires.
