WATCH: Sickening couple in Spain run brown bears off road in car


SPANIARDS have been left fuming after a video of two bears being chased down by a car went viral. 

Spain’s Brown Bear Foundation (FOP) has condemned the clip of two young animals, which appears to have been filmed in the northern region of Cantabria.

The incident was captured on video and posted online where it has been watched nearly 30,000 times. The viral one-minute video, filmed by the passenger, shows the bears being pursued by the car down the road linking the villages of La Lastra and Tudancia.

The car continues at full speed with its headlights on.



A person can be heard whistling and growling at the bears to grab their attention as a woman exclaims, ‘look how they run together.’

The brown bears can be seen running in front of the car until one is chased off the road and the other continues on alone.

The foundation has also warned of the growing popularity of animal cruelty videos.

“Every day it is becoming more common to see cruelty like this on social media,” it said.

The pair behind the viral video has yet to be identified.

Brown bears can grow up to 2 meters in height and weigh between 85 and 115 kilograms, depending on the sex and lives between 25 and 30 years.

Around 240 brown bears are estimated to live in the regions of Asturias and Cantabria and in the provinces of Lugo (Galicia), and León and Palencia (Castilla y León).
