Residents in Chaiyaphum’s Kudloh subdistrict and surrounding areas have been warned against going into sugarcane plantations after officials confirmed that footprints found in one sugarcane field belonged to bears.

 

In a Facebook post on Monday, a local of Kaset Somboon district showed pictures of bears’ footprints found in the plantation in Kudloh subdistrict. He urged officials to catch the animals before they attacked villagers.

 

Upon being notified, officials of the Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary in Chaiyaphum’s Khon San district were sent to investigate and reportedly said the footprints belonged to an adult female bear and two of its cubs.

“The mother bear is suspected to weigh from 30-100kg, while the two cubs should weigh around 20 kg,” one of the officials said. “They could have wandered from the wildlife sanctuary into the plantations to find food. We have ordered locals in the area to refrain from going out to their plantations until the animals are caught.”

The officials added that they would use honey as bait and then shoot the bears with a tranquiliser gun. But the animals have so far proved elusive.

If you go down in the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise
If you go down in the woods today, you'd better go in disguise
For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain
Because today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

Why are they so scared of bears?  America has them and people get on with things. They dont go trapping them all in case they attack people do they? 

 

I hope of they catch the bears they don't put them in a zoo. Leave them be...they are native wildlife here that are endangered.

 

How can picking up a crab or sea cucumber lead to going to prison bit trapping bears and their cubs is ok?
