Brown Bear Walks Through Airport Security Check Point

Thu Jun 13, 2019 1:09 am

OK, it's Russia, but still. There are pictures. Maybe it was an Emotional Support Bear?

A brown bear alert was raised early in the morning on June at the Yelizovo airport, the main gateway to spectacular Kamchatka peninsula with some of the world’s most beautiful volcanoes and glaciers.

The beast was filmed by CCTV cameras walking through the personnel's security gate.

‘Look who we have here at 5.30am. And without ID, too!’ - says a security guard as he watches the animal confidently walking past his booth.

Residents and visitors in regional capital Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky were informed about the wanderlust animal, and asked to take extra care when traveling to and from the airport.

Glad to see that the snow melts in June. I was there for days one April, feet of snow on the ground and it snowed most nights.

okay, "Bearport" was funny.
but, "major airport" is a lot of literary license, though I get its meant to be relative to the area.... even more, "security checkpoint".
forgiven due to the sweet shot of that airliner against the mountainous backdrop...

He is a grizzly bear. He will be going through whatever he feels like going through. Don't see the Russian version of the TSA trying to get in the way...

I would hate to be the guy sitting next to him on the plane, though - just imagine the amount of belt extenders he must need.

I flew into Petro once on Aeroflot with a group of American bear hunters. They could have saved a ton of time in the “wild”! Just shoot the bear, go back thru Security and fly home.

I could be wrong, but I don’t think there’s any way in or out of the area other than by ship or plane. This is not any different from the security situation I’ve witnessed in remote parts of northern Canada.

I can’t remember, but I doubt Security was very much more than that. True, you have to fly or float in. I asked our handler about safety and security in town. He replied that the police know all the bad actors and keep them in control. Baggage claim was a tractor pulling a trailer stacked with bags. They drove through that gate into the lot in front of the door and left to sort it out.

I've been to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy Bearport last year and can confirm that this is not the actual security checkpoint. It's the setup that most airports in the region have where there's a separate check to enter the building/perimeter. That being said, the actual security check wasn't too harsh either, I guess they know if you've made it to Kamchatka, by all likelihood you passed the actual security check in Moscow.

On another note, because the terminal is under construction, we deboarded the Aeroflot 777 using stairs and then walked across the apron to the little cute gate in the fence and just left through it (there was a small tent for baggage claim).

The airport was the first airport in the world where none of the taxi drivers wanted my business but the city and also the approach are some of the most beautiful sceneries I've ever seen. Definitely can recommend Kamchatka to everyone.
