Hide the children. The polar bears have invaded

A polar bear has been filmed walking into apartments in the Russian Arctic archipelago of Novaya Zemlya, where locals are facing a massive "invasion" of the wild animals.

Russian environmental authorities have deployed a team of specialists to a remote Arctic region to sedate and remove dozens of hungry polar bears that have besieged the people living there.

News agency TASS says that some of the bears have been aggressive, attacking people and entering homes.

The influx of polar bears has steadily climbed as the affects of climate change drive the large predators further inland to seek food as the Arctic ice melts depriving them of rich hunting grounds.

"There are constantly 6 to 10 bears inside the settlement", he said.

An absence of sea ice around the southern portion of the Novaya Zemlya island chain this year has most likely forced more bears than usual onto shore, Ilya N. Mordvintsev, a professor at the Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution and a leading Russian expert on polar bears, said in a telephone interview.

To protect the town, locals have built extra fences around schools and other sites, while special patrols try to scare off the bears with cars and dogs.

A working group of regional and federal officials is set to visit the archipelago to assess the situation and the measures taken so far. The residents of the island tried to scare off the polar bears using auto horns and dogs, but in vain.
