A brown bear tumbling down a rocky, steep mountain in J&K's Kargil after it was pelted with stones by locals will have you questioning if there is an ounce of humanity still left. A clip, which is now going viral for all the wrong reasons shows the bear struggling to get a hold on-to an uneven rocky cliff in Jammu and Kashmirâ€™s Kargil before people in the backdrop start throwing stones at it that eventually drove the helpless bear to fall into the river. The video that opened up the eyes of a lot of people regarding the ill-treatment of animals was even retweeted by the former chief minister of the state Mehbooba Mufti. â€œHeartbreaking & inhuman. Why invade their habitat in the first place?â€ she tweeted.
