Japan’s Iwate region tries to deploy rock’n’roll bear fight – Earth – Science and technology

Can rock’n’roll keep people safe from bear attacks? The Japanese region hopes this, so she let a couple of experienced rockers record a song that warns residents of the threat of bear neighbors.

Bears are common throughout Japan and regularly cause commotion when one of them wanders into the city. Attacks on humans, which can end in death, are no exception.

The increase in the number of bears that residents have seen roaming in rural areas in northern Japan has forced Iwate Prefecture to try an innovative solution – the rock anti-bear anthem, which will be played by local malls and shops around the roads.

“Do you think bear cubs are cute?” Begins the lyrics of the song, accompanied by howling guitars and beating drums. “Forget about such a naive way of thinking! There is a mother bear near the cub and she will attack you out of nowhere! Rev, rev, rev, rev, rev, rev – out of nowhere they will attack you! ”Sings the song.

The song was written and recorded by local rockers who, after more than six decades of life, have enough experience with both rock’n’roll and bears. Thanks to this, they also tried to incorporate practical advice into the lyrics, what to do in case of an encounter with a bear – for example: “Never turn your back and try to run away!” Or “Pretending the dead doesn’t work!”.

Sixty-nine-year-old singer Yuzen Taguchi told reporters that the advice itself had served him well when he once met a bear near the field. “It’s very scary when a bear appears in front of you,” he added. “You want to run away, but my grandparents once told me that if I ever met a bear, I would never turn my back on him. I just have to back up slowly and stay facing him, “he said.

The author of the lyrics is sixty-one-year-old Kaoru Touda, who originally thought that his song would be blues. “It is said that bears are shy animals. So I think that if any of them heard the song, they would run away, “Toudy remarked. “That’s the power of rock’n’roll,” he added.
