A Chinese and a Russian brown bear fight at the state border

By The Siberian Times reporter
29 June 2020

Barbed fence and trail camera smashed by furious males, leaving the winner unknown.

There is no sound on the video filmed on 11 May in Jewish Autonomous region, in eastern Siberia, but the brief moment of the attack caught on trail camera suggests that it must have been one rowdy fight. 

The rivals came one from the Russian side, the other from the Chinese side, to a path liked by endangered Amur tigers. 

It was a team from the Russian Amur Tiger Centre that set the trail camera to follow the life of the animals that were rescued by them, and reintroduced back to the wild.

‘Amur tigers have always walked here in peace and quiet, yet the bears broke everything as soon as they came!

'They also broke photo trails set along other parts of the path - and they didn’t even notice barbed wire!’ the centre’s team said.

Jewish Autonomous region is home to several reintroduced Amur tigers, rescued by the team of the Amur Tiger Centre

The centre was set up outside Vladivostok to help big cats like endangered Amur leopards and Amur tigers, the world’s biggest cats.

Just like the alpha male homo sapien species fighting for territory!!!

Hopefully there were no winners,neither losers in this territorial power fight and that the Russian and Chinese Bears kept their respective territories, "signing" a truce...

Hopefully they also kept far away from the majestic Amur Tigers with their cubs in all their frenzy.
