September 21, 2016, Thimphu: Including the two Himalayan Black bears rescued on September 5 and another one three days later on 8, the wildlife rescue centre in Taba has rescued the third bear in the month on September 18. This one, a male weighing 51 kgs was rescued from right in the periphery of the capital city, behind the pension housing colony.
Rescue officials expressed their surprise with the boldness of the bear to venture right in the periphery of the town with lots of hustle and bustle. “It was indeed a big surprise to sight a Himalayan Black bear just next to the town,” said a rescue team member, Tsencho Tshering. He said it is unusual for a bear to prowl into an area heavily dominated with human. The heavy vehicular movements should have been too noisy for the bear to bear the nuisance.
