Bears fall from cliff during fight, female survives

STORY: Video footage showed the female bear involved in the fight with a bigger male on the edge of a mountain cliff on Monday (June 6), when the two fel from a great height onto the rocks below.

The male's body rolled a long way downhill and remained motionless after that, while the disoriented female limped away from the site where she landed, the video showed.

After looking for her for two days in the mountains of Northern Castile and Leon, near Palencia, the park rangers found the female bear's 15-meter-deep burrow, the environment service said on Wednesday (June 8) on its website.

Using specialist camera probes and telescopic hooks, they then left fruit and water for them in the burrow, it said.

It is not uncommon for male bears to attack females with cubs during the mating season.
