Slovakian bears show brazen behaviour as town declares emergency

A state of emergency is declared in a Slovakian town, due to the frequent appearance of bears.

There have been recent attempts by bears in Vysoké Tatry to break into people's houses, and police are advising locals to be especially cautious when going near waste containers after dark.

Journalist Zuzana Botiková tells BBC Outside Source how people are dealing with the situation.
