A tourist skiing on Saturday on the slope in Predeal a had the misfortune to meet one Bear who began to follow him and ran after him. The incident was noticed by people sitting in the chairlift. They tried to warn the skier at risk.
“Give it faster, give it faster! Come on he’s chasing you ursul! Give it up faster! God forbid don’t look back! “The people in the chairlift were yelling at him.
Fortunately, after the unexpected encounter with the animal, the young man was able to escape safely. The spokesman for the District Inspectorate of the Gendarmerie, Ion Zaharia, told Digi24 that the tourist did the right thing when at one point he threw his backpack and the bear was busy investigating this object and the danger was overcome.
According to the mountain gendarmes, three calls were received during the day to 112, which signaled the presence of a urs. Two calls related to the Clabucet runway and another to the runway where the tourist who ran away from the animal was skiing, a runway that appeared to be closed. Hence the authorities from Brasov issued two ro-alert messages.
However, this is not the first time the presence of a bear has been reported on the Clăbucet slope. And last week un chicken from urs was filmed crossing an area with tourists near the chairlift area.
On each of the calls received on Saturday, the gendarmes went into the area in a tracked ATV and the bear, probably startled by the noise, fled into the woods. According to Ion Zaharia, such incidents are not uncommon, and this year too they were fewer than in previous years.
One option now being considered is relocation of the animal, a solution that was used last year.
