Let's Hear It for the Bear

BBC reports:

A bear killed two militants after discovering them in its den in Indian-administered Kashmir, police say.

Two other militants escaped, one of them badly wounded, after the attack in Kulgam district, south of Srinagar.

The militants had assault rifles but were taken by surprise - police found the remains of pudding they had made to eat when the bear attacked.

What the story didn't note was that the "militants" were radical Muslims. Will there be reprisals against the wildlife?
