A bear about 3 feet in size was captured in Fukushima prefecture on Sunday and Japanese media reports said two police officers were attacked while recovering the body of a missing man. It remains unclear if the man died due to a bear attack. News footage showed police officers putting up signs warning people to stay out of mountainous areas where the bears were sighted.
