A bear has appeared on the streets of the Romanian city of Busteni. The animal was running in the very center, near the train station and the police station. According to local authorities, this is not the first such case in this area.

Romania is home to around 6,000 brown bears – around 60 percent of the total European brown bear population. No wonder that close encounters with people often take place in the mountainous regions of the country.

He was running around the city center

The bear was filmed on Tuesday near the Busteni police station, right in the city center. The photos captured by the drivers show that the animal had a collar around its neck, probably with a GPS transmitter.

Residents immediately called to the place of service. A special warning was issued informing about the presence of a dangerous predator. Before the appropriate services arrived, the animal was lightly hit by a car. Eventually the bear returned to the forest.

Frequent meetings with bears

Such cases are commonplace in Bușteni, says mayor Laurențiu-Mircea Corbu, adding that three or four individuals appear every night. Residents fear that accidents may occur in the future.

A few days ago, two brothers from the Vrancea region were hospitalized severely injured after being attacked by bears.
