Polar bears in a town in Russia are scaring people. Over 52 bears walk around the town. This is serious. The bears chase people into their homes. Parents are afraid to let their children go to school. There have never been this many polar bears. The town said there is a "polar bear emergency".

The bears are looking for food. The sea ice is melting because of climate change. The bears can smell food outside homes. The town wants to kill the bears. Russia's environmental agency said no. Polar bears are in danger. The World Wildlife Fund says this is because of the loss of the bears' sea ice habitat.
