A brown bear was shot dead in northern Japan after tearing through a residential area on Friday and injuring four people. CNN reports a local resident in the city of Sapporo, which is due to host the Olympic Marathon and Olympic Race Walking events at this summer’s Tokyo Games, first reported seeing a bear on a road in the early hours of the morning.

News footage from local station HTB Hokkaido News showed the bear running along a residential street, crossing a busy road and pawing at the gates of a Japan Self Defense Force military barracks, before running away.
Local police said the bear attacked three men, one of whom was seriously injured, and a woman in her 80s. At around 11 a.m., the bear was shot  by two men from the local hunting association near Sapporo Okadama airport.
