In or near Karminagar, Andhra Pradesh, India, a bear that had been bothering the local villagers, attacked and killed one of the people there. It is difficult to distinguish the talking in the video but it sounded a couple times as though the reporters were saying the dead villager was attacked while riding a bicycle.

Villagers attempt to scare the bear away from the dead man, with sticks, only to have the bear turn on the people and attack at least one other man. A great number of villagers descend on the bear and club it to death. At some point during the clubbing, a man, whose identity I don’t know, showed up with a rifle and fired two shots at close range at the bear.

Perhaps none of this would have happened if these people had sufficient resources to defend themselves. The report states that the villagers complained that authorities had done nothing about this troublesome bear.
