In the Kronotsky reserve (Kurilskoye Lake, South Kamchatsky Zakaznik) the worker died from the claws of a bear. He accompanied tourists who were on their way to a spot from which awkward predators could catch the salmon from the spawning sockeye.
He was in an area where there are no hiking trails. Bears dig the extracted salmon from the sockeye and guard it. The young man was killed in a skirmish with a bear, his body was discovered by the protection of the reserve. An official investigation is under way.
