Bears Released Into the Wild And Immediately Turn On Their Rescuers

Dramatic pictures captured the moment terrified spectators fled for their lives after a group of bears launched an unexpected attack on their rescuers while being released back into the wild in Iraq, Reuters reported.

Six Syrian brown bears that were saved from captivity in people’s homes were being freed during a wildlife conservation project in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq.

But moments after the cages were opened, the raging bears charged towards the crowd of onlookers and journalists as the ceremony descended into chaos.

The animals were kept in steel cages, surrounded by a large crowd of reporters, spectators and armed officers. But as the bears took their initial steps to freedom, they set to show on their rescuers as they charged towards the people.

According to the top of the organization, mix Prevkani, the saved bears were brought from completely different areas in southern Iraq. The rescuer told Shafaq News agency:

Some of them were bought, whereas the others got to the USA by their owners.

This was the third such unleash by the organization over the past few years.
