Hokkaido brown bear attacking cow “OSO18” First clear picture taken | NHK

A transparent shade picture of a brown bear referred to as “OSO18” attacking cows one after one other in Shibecha Town, Hokkaido, has been captured. This is the primary time I’ve photographed a bear recognized as OSO18.

According to the city of Shibecha, round 6:00 am on June 25, it was confirmed {that a} bear was captured by a surveillance digital camera put in within the wildland of Nakachanbetsu in Shibecha city.

From the 5 photographs launched by the city,
▽ The entire physique of a bear with a size of two to 2.2 meters,
▽ The look of rubbing the physique in opposition to the lure that collects physique hair hooked up to the trunk of the tree,
I can verify.

According to the city, on account of appraising the physique hair collected this time, it matched the DNA kind of OSO18 collected prior to now.

Until now, photographs of bears believed to be OSO18 have been launched, however that is the primary time that they’ve been recognized as OSO18.

OSO18 attacked a dairy cow on the twenty fourth, the day earlier than the photograph was taken, at a ranch about 10 kilometers north, and is believed to have traveled this distance in someday.

In the cities of Shibecha and Akkeshi in japanese Hokkaido, a complete of 66 cows grazing have been attacked one after one other since 2019, and each are believed to have been broken by OSO18.

The Shibecha Town Agriculture and Forestry Division says, “By looking at the color, we were able to understand the external characteristics of the black fur covering the entire body and the daily behavioral route. We would like to proceed with efforts to capture it.”
