Balobanova was at a friend’s wedding nearby when she got into a fight with another guest and stormed off into the wilderness more than a month ago, the article said.

“It is no longer possible to hope that the woman will be found alive,” wildlife inspector Andrei Sakulin told the outlet.

“There were footprints of a mother bear and cubs which meant the spot was “very dangerous for humans”, he reportedly said.

“If a person accidentally finds themselves between a bear and her cubs, the predator can attack immediately and harshly, without growls and warnings.”
