Robo Wolf vs. Samurai Bear.

I see a multi-billion dollar franchise blockbuster series in the making + additional profits from overpriced merchandise.

The plot is irrelevant as long as the movie includes laser beams, katanas and a cameo appearance by Morgan Freeman.

Yes. They have lived there all their lives.

The Ainu (indigenous people who predated the ethnic Japanese in Japan) who still live in the north practically worship bears as part of their native religion.

But Japan is such a crowded country that I am surprised that bears would still be a threat to folks there.

It also works to deter holiday guests who might be viral.

I'd hate to be a boy scout in rural Japan...hard enough you need to keep an eye out for bears you now have to contend with robot wolves 8O
