Locals from Zetea village in Harghita county were warned about a bear in the area through an alert message on their phones. Gendarmes deployed on scene found out it’s a bear cub that is usually coming down from the forest in the village…to eat apples from an orchard.
The gendarmes did not actually find the bear cub, but they were assured by the villagers it’s an inoffensive baby bear that has a favorite spot in the village….an apple orchard. After eating, the bear would go back in the woods.
More and more bears are getting down from the forests in the villages or on the roads to look for food.
