This is the moment a group of Russian hunters film their flattened and seriously damaged 4WDs after bears were apparently attracted to food in the vehicles.
The incident was filmed in a forest located in the far-eastern Russian region of Magadan Oblast where three vehicles belonging to a local group of hunters were apparently destroyed by wild animals, believed to be bears.
In the footage, several hunters are seen inspecting a Russian UAZ jeep with a caved-in roof and smashed windows.
Surprisingly, the young men find the scene amusing and they repeatedly laugh as they move on to the next damaged vehicles, a Mitsubishi Pajero and Toyota Hilux.
In the next scene, the wild animals have apparently ripped the seating and upholstery in both badly-damaged vehicles.
The cameraman said: “This is how bears have fun in our area.”
According to local media, the hunters left food in their vehicles which is what is believed to have attracted the wild animals to the area.
The group said they parked their vehicles in that spot while walking to another area of the forest to hunt birds where they remained for several hours.
