Brown Bears damage homes in Shimshal Valley, Gilgit Baltistan

Brown Bears have come to remote Shimhal valley and have disturbed the normal life of the village folks it has destroyed about 20 homes. The community is scared to go at night and children are forbidden to go out at night.

Unless the bear is relocated the villagers might take the matter in their own hands. Local authorizes are requested to relocate the bear to its natural habitat.


Last year a pair of brown Bear were released by Bio Resource Centre (Islamabad) and GB Wildlife Department in Khunjrab National Park. It is feared that these bears might entered into Shimsahl valley.
