Krasnoyarsk police and hunters have been searching for a bear in Krasnoyarsk Akademgorodok for the second day. The bear was last seen by citizens of Oktyabrsky district of Krasnoyarsk near the main academic building of the Siberian Federal University and has not been found so far, the district interior department reported.

Hunters of the federal agricultural regulatory agency Rosselkhoznadzor joined police officers in the search of the dangerous forest predator. If the bear is found he will be killed immediately, Rosselkhoznadzor reported.

The search groups are combing through the area focusing on the places where the bear was seen by citizens: in the wood near the main high school building.

Unless the predator is found, the search will be continued Friday.

As Newslab reported earlier, bears have been regularly seen in the streets in towns and cities of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. A year ago police had to shoot down a bear at the lake in Zheleznogorsk where local citizens have rest. Another bear had killed a woman near Zheleznogorsk.
