Russia's northern region declares state of emergency over polar bear invasion

Generally, polar bears are born on land but spend most of their time on ice sheets and in the water, where they hunt and feed on seals, The Washington Post said. "A total of 50 polar bears are near the human settlements so we have loads of work ahead".
Fifty-two bears have been spotted close to the archipelago's main population center, Belushya Guba, with six to 10 of them constantly inside the village, Alexander Minaev, the deputy head of the local municipal administration toldRussian state news agency, TASS.
Stories careening around the web over the past few days have sounded the alarm about an "invasion" of polar bears on an archipelago at the northern reaches of Russian Federation.
Polar bears may look cute and cuddly when you see them in YouTube videos or in Coca-Cola commercials, but we're pretty sure you wouldn't want a pack of them to invade your hometown.
But the statement from the town says if there is no way to scare the bears away, killing them will be a last resort. Bears tend to return to wherever they have found food before, so they are likely to return again to the dump.
That's exactly why Belushya Guba is seeing an unprecedented deluge of polar bears. The bears normally congregate on the sea ice near the southern part of the Novaya Zemlya island chain, but a lack of ice this year has pushed the animals into human contact.
The polar bear population is at risk.
No word yet on whether the town has tried banning Coca-Cola as a solution. In 2006 they made a decision to close down the dump and bury the garbage. Shawn Bobier, district supervisor with the provincial Conservation Department said: "It's a big building with a concrete floor". Officials are patrolling the town to give warnings to about 3,000 residents. The Siberia town may not have such an old building available although it is possible. As it is now everything is out in plain view and accessible.
