Bear is coming to town

Though bears normally prefer quieter parties at night and far away from cities, one has been caught on camera in broad daylight 50 kilometers away from Riga, Latvian Television said August 18.

This bear had certainly dressed for the occasion - all in black with a white collar. The camera for which the party-goer was posing belongs to hunter Juris Jaškevičs and is located near a feeder. The fine creature was caught on  footage Saturday, August 15, in Turkalne forests.

"Unbelievable! I'd heard in Latgale, there were many bears, but not here not this year," said hunter Mārtiņš Bramanis.

The hunters also asked to bear in mind that the bear is a protected species in Latvia and it is forbidden to shoot them.
