Spectacled Bears - Shadows of the Forest
A native of South America, a few years ago the spectacled bear was once thought to be a shy, vegetarian animal of the Andean cloud forests. However farmers in the regions where spectacled bears live claim their cattle have been attacked and killed by these animals. But opinions differ wildly and some believe that other than a few insects, the bears are strictly vegetarian. Natural World travels across the Andes in a quest to discover the truth. Including interviews with farmers, rare footage of the bears and their homes, this film goes in search of the evidence.
