5 The Land of Bears

The Land of Bears

Kurilsk lake is famous not only with its wonderful landscapes and surrounding volcanoes, but also with the demographic situation of bears which is very good as there are plenty of the animals here. This is where one can get a clear understanding that a bear is not a fluffy toy but a dangerous predator and doesn't kill people only because there is an abundance of tested and safe food around. As soon as the food is over, no person can be saved.

Dogs of Kamchatka are very loyal to people and try to stay near them. Some of them are even ready to supply tourists with rabbits so that they will never die of hunger.

    Thank you, English Russia, for showing us more of your glorious Kamchatka Peninsula.

    Those bears are brown bears (Ursus arctos – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_bear), not Asian black bear (Ursus thibetanus – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_black_bear) or (North) American black bear (Ursus americanus – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_black_bear), and I have the scull of one from the Canadian Pacific coast on my TV.

    Is there anything at all that Kamchatka does not have?

    Mountains, volcanoes, forests, moors, lakes, rivers, the sea, bears, foxes…apparently everything can be found there. I hope that incredibly beautiful place does not get ruined by human greed.

  4. What a beautiful place. I’d move there in a second if I could.

    Stunning scenery. I would say the rivers and lakes are teaming with wild trout and salmon to keep the bears fed.
