On the highway between Khanty-Mansiysk and Tyumen in central Russia, motorists have taken to throwing treats onto the road for bears to eat. Naturally, the roadway is now being overrun with begging bears.

In the video above, which popped up on LiveLeak yesterday, our somewhat dickish filmmakers roll down their window to feed the following to the bears:

  • Some bread.
  • A hand (almost).
  • Some juice and/or malt liquor.

Note that the driver has a bandaged-up right hand, presumably from the last time he tried to trick a bear into thinking his hand was food.

Russians, stop feeding bears. Bears, stop begging. It's beneath you.

Tom Ley is out today. His regular bear coverage will resume next Bear Friday.
