Three bear cubs with their mom are wondering about Sagadi.


Since this spring, local people have noticed a she-bear with three cubs in local forests and fields. Lately it has been possible to meet them at the feeding places for wild boars, where the bears find enough tasty apples or grain to fatten themselves for the winter period.

Before hibernating, bears need to eat a lot, and therefore they have also visited local orchards and gardens, damaging apple-trees. The best way to get enough resources for the long winter is to eat meat, i.e. eat corpses found in the forest or sometimes even kill deer and moose by themselves.

Bears start their winter-nap in November. The youngsters will spend this winter with their mum, but next summer they have to get used to living on their own.
