Bear Cub Dies in Car Crash

The body of a brown bear cub, which was struck dead by a car, was found on Monday morning on Mojen-Taash road in Shahroud, Semnan Province.  
This is the sixth bear victimized in the area in road accidents over the past year, Ali Akbar Qorbanlou, head of the provincial office of Department of Environment, said regretfully. 
"An adult female and four more bear cubs had been earlier found dead around the intercity roads of Shahroud," Mehr News Agency quoted him as saying. 
Unfortunately, much of brown bears' natural habitat has gone through human-induced changes, Qorbanlou added.
