A bear apparently wounded by hunters broke into a school in the Primorye Territory in Russia's Far East, police said Sunday.
The incident occurred on Friday. A police officer who arrived at the scene had to open fire to kill the animal when the bear attacked him and ripped his clothes.
The bear's body was given to a local agricultural academy, where it will be studied.
"The animal became aggressive, and we had no other way out than to shoot. It's good no one in the village was injured," a police officer said.
