Animals

Two brown bears look ready to join fight club – as they play fight for the tourists sailing on by.

Photographer Dmitriy Khasanov, 39, from Russia, caught the snaps as the adult bears began sparring in Kamchatka – whilst their cubs looked on.

Dmitriy said: “It was all a bit funny as there was a feeling of some kind of fight club –  with the fighters and spectators all involved.

“The bears probably think they live a life of superstars  – always on camera, but never at gunpoint – because they live in a protected zone.

“It’s great – they can’t be hunted and the bears don’t have to be afraid of people.”
