PAYVAND IRAN NEWS

TEHRAN, Apr. 25 (Mehr News Agency) – The Iranian black bear is on the verge of extinction.

The black bear inhabits the southern provinces of Sistan and Balouchestan, Kerman, and Hormozqan.

Despite the warning officials from the Environment Department have shrugged off the matter, an expert told the Mehr News Agency.

The farmers in the region have not been informed of the issue and they frequently attack the bears because of the damage they have inflicted on their lands, he added.
