The cubs, clearly terrified, looked on helplessly as their mother savaged the attacker.

The images were taken in Kronotsky Nature Reserve in eastern Russia.

Denis said: “The bears are pretty friendly there as they are used to people already.

“They understand that people won’t do any harm to them.


“Bears still have quite complicated relations in their society as these photos show.

“I think it was some kind of territorial dispute.

“Thankfully, the conflict only lasts a couple of minutes and none of the bears were harmed.”
