WILD FOOTAGE: Newly-Released Bears Chase Down Rescuers, Onlookers

That did NOT go as planned.

No matter how well we may think that we know a wild animal, there is always going to be some sliver of natural mystery that we cannot quite grasp.  It’s the sort of feral-ness that was groomed out of us as we created societies based around safety and prosperity.  It’s our unwillingness to allow danger to be a normal part of our everyday lives that keeps us from fully understanding what these creatures are capable of.

This is the reason why we imbue some wild animals with a human sense of compassion or trust, especially in cases where we are helpful or kind to an animal.  We just expect that they understand this.

But, as evidenced by the stunning images coming out of Iraq, this is not truly the case. 

REPORTERS and police sprint for safety as a group of caged bears go on the attack moments after being released into the wild.

The chaotic scene was captured in these dramatic pictures of a wildlife conservation project in northern Iraq yesterday.
