Only in the area of route is up to 70 animals showing aggression to other canines and people. The reason for this behavior was the lack of spawning fish river sockeye salmon that feed the bears.
According to the Director of reserve Peter Shpilenok, if the problem is with the filling of the spawning grounds of sockeye salmon will not be solved, the tourist program will have to close. “This, of course, will lead to economic and image losses, but the safety of people and animals is a priority for us”, — he said.
