Bears are heading into their well-concealed dens to hibernate, so we thought it would be a good time to look back on this crazy year of bears.

As record temperatures around the globe decimated berry crops, bears encroached on human territories, with deadly consequences. Wildlife officials had to deal with some hairy bear situations involving trees, vans, and even a milk jug. And one man was accused of using bears as guards for his marijuana crop.

Is this just a normal year of crazy bear stories? Or is something up around the globe that is driving bears to weirder and weirder antics?

Bears in Russia are learning to open coffins and eat human remains. Officials offer conflicting reasons for why. While the Director of the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) in Russia claims that they have had plenty to eat and just find the cemeteries as easy as reaching in the freezer for a snack, the vice-president of Komi's hunting and fishing society says they are desperate for food after a record heat wave this summer.
