The woods were infested with bears
Over 150 people are now searching for a 7 year old Japanese boy after his parents decided to leave him alone in bear infested woods to 'punish him.' They're the ones being punished now.
It's been three days since the parents left the boy as punishment for throwing rocks at passing cars and people, in an area near Nanae-cho, Hokkaido, only to return to find him missing.
An attempt at punishment went horribly wrong after these parents left their son in bear infested woods to teach him a lesson.
