A frightening moment was captured on camera, during which a group of bears launched an unexpected attack on their rescuers while being released into the wild in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. Six brown Syrian bears, rescued from an illegal stay in the country’s private homes, were released last Friday back into the wild, in a process that was documented entirely as part of a wildlife conservation project. Watch the process of the release of the bears and the attack:
Throughout the video one can see the helpless bears inside cages, which were used to transport them to nature and from there to their release. Surrounded by people and cameras, project people opened the cages and let the bears roam freely in the snow. Seconds later, the group of Syrian bears began surprisingly attacking the audience and journalists who came to accompany the event.
So far, it is not known if there were any injuries in the incident, which luckily ended in peace. According to the head of the association, Bland Prabkani, the bears were rescued from different parts of the country, “some were bought while the others were given to us by their owners,” he told the Shafek news agency. It was also reported that this was the association’s third release in recent years.
