  • [01] Mother bear, cub rescued after being stranded on NW Greece highway

    (ANA-MPA) -- A female bear and her 10-month-old cub were rescued on Tuesday morning after police stopped traffic on a provincial roadway in northwest Greece, allowing the two disoriented animals to calm down and move toward the nearby Aliakmon River forest.

    This was the third such incident recorded in the specific region over the past month, while numerous crossings of bears and their cubs have been reported.

    The animal conservation group Arcturos, called in to help remove the bears from the Neapolis - Kastoria highway -- near the village of Kostarazi -- praised the concerned citizen that called police to report the two animals in distress.

    One of the eight fatal road accidents involving bears recorded this year took place in the specific region. The protective fence along the Egnatia motorway and intersecting roadways built to keep animals out has collapsed in many parts of the network making it dangerous for motorists and animals alike.
