Two brown bears walk on a street in Shari in Hokkaido, northern Japan on October 18, 2010. A total of three bears, including the 139-kg mother (left), and 64-kg one-year-old female cub shown here, were spotted by children in a forest near an elementary school. The bears started to stroll in the town center for about 40 minutes before being shot by a local hunter.
