Imagine strolling through a lovely Finnish woodland when you come across an almost strange sight: a sleught of bear cubs dancing in a circle. You’d probably feel like you’d walked into a Disney film and muttered Mr. Peanutbutter’s famous line, “What is this, a crossover episode?” Valtteri Mulkahainen, a Finnish physical education teacher, experienced this as he explored the forests surrounding Martinselkonen in 2013.
Valtteri stated the bears behaved like little children, playing about and even creating a few friendly fights in an interview. “I thought as though I were on a playground is next to my home, surrounded by tiny children.” “They reminded me so much of little toddlers,” the guy added. “At one point, the three of them sprang up on their hind legs and began shoving one another. They seemed to be dancing in a circle.”
And don’t worry, the instructor was not in any danger when he snapped the images; he did it from a 50-meter (164-foot) distance.
It turns out that bears are relatively prevalent in Finnish woodlands. The only location they don’t live in is on the Outer Hebrides.
Even though Valterri’s images may motivate you to go out and capture some of your own, you should exercise caution. Bears, despite their bulk and clumsiness, are swift and adept tree climbers and swimmers. So maintain your distance if you want to capture these magnificent animals.
