Escaped bear shocked pedestrians

2018-02-06 17:22
Pedestrians in Basra, Iraq, got quite a shock this morning: A huge bear lumbering across the street. The animal had escaped from a shop where it was being held for sale, according to local news reports. Onlookers captured footage of the Syrian brown bear ambling through crowded streets of the Persian Gulf port city before it was captured and returned to the shop. The bear was safely captured and returned to the shop. Credit: Ammar Kadhim via Storyful, Almirbad via Storyful, AP
