Posted in: Hunters kill brown bear in residential area of Sapporo See in context

That's because bears have a fair sense of orientation, and they usually can get back to where they came from unless they are extremely far away from their starting point (Which is unlikely in Japan). It's quite a problem, if they think that populated areas are part of their territory, and if they really went to schools and hospitals, i can kinda understand... You can't just relocate a bear to anywhere, because it needs a huge part of uninhibited space in an area where fauna and flora is the same and without any other "enemies or competition" to garantie it's survival... (Saw a documentation of relocating Russian bears not too long ago...)
