RE: The Syrian Brown Bear was seen in Lebanon for the first time in 60 years

in #nature4 years ago

I hope it's good news. Could be running from bombs in search of food desperate. But I truly hope it's because the population is thriving.

Sort:  

Well, ironically the subspecies is extinct in Syria as well, so it's not running from there. It is true that bears could disperse for 500km, so theoretically they could be from Turkey, but I personally think it is more likely that they have been in Lebanon all this time without anyone knowing. Dispersing 500km is pretty rare for bears, but doable, but maybe we will know for sure where they are from if someone manages to snatch a DNA sample from them.
