Russian Bears Eating Corpses

Due to a lack of food, bears in some regions of Russia are using graveyards "like refrigerators," according to scientists. Locals say the bears have alternately scavenged towns and trashcans, as a scorching summer has depleted their natural diet of berries, mushrooms, and the like. One young man was mauled to death by the starving beasts in Komi.

Other analysts say the bears have plenty to eat, it's simply that graveyards offer an easy food supply.
