This is no exeption. This goes on every year, for hundreds and hundreds of times, carried out by authorities together with reindeer-owner and the big lobby of hunters. This trend in society is totally concentrated on human dominance on nature. Human trafficking of the nature is serious but seen as totally normal, not being questioned or acted against.

Photo: prints from the forepaw of the same bear. He was walking on the road and disappeared then into the forrest. The weight was probably around 300 kg and the age about 10 years, quite a big one.

When I was meeting him there on the road, with a distance of about 100 meters, the bear seemed very calm and walked for about 70 meters on the dirt road before leaving for the forrest. His reaction to the meeting was clear: he was trying to avoid me - and I certainly do understand why he is avoiding people - feeling disturbed in his natural environment, sensing danger. He went to the forrest after having seen me and I was occupied with destroying his prints on the road for about halv an hour. Surely, he watched me doing this and maybe he understood that I ment no danger to him. I am convinced that the problem is the humans and not the bears. And bears might be able to sense people's intentions and of course will defend him or herself and the cups if chased by them.
Their environment have been totally destroyed by human exploitation, easily to be seen in the bears territory: everything is cut into pieces by big maschines, which of course takes away their possibilities to live in peace. The public forest companies and private forest owners seem to actually not want any kind of species left in the forests. These actors do not respect other species rights to live in the forest.
Of course there will not be published any coordinates or places where bears have been observed - not by me at least - and I hope not by you either!
