Imagine walking through a beautiful Finnish forest when you see a group of cubs dancing in circles. It would be like walking into a Disney movie and hearing Mr. Peanutbutter say, “What is this? A crossover episode?” Valtterimulkahainen, a Finnish physical educator, saw this while exploring the forest surrounding Martinselkonen in 2013.
Valtteri said that the bears behaved as if they were children and played around, even getting into a few fights during an interview. The guy said he felt like he was on a playground next to his home, surrounded by tiny children. “At one point, they jumped up on their hind legs to start pushing each other. They looked like they were dancing in a circle.”
Don’t worry! The instructor wasn’t in danger as he took the photos from a distance of 50 meters (164 feet).
Bears are pretty common in Finnish forests. They don’t reside in the Outer Hebrides.
Although Valterri’s photos may inspire you to take some pictures of your own, you must exercise caution. Despite their size and bulk, bears are quick and skilled tree climbers and swimmers. If you wish to capture these majestic animals, keep your distance.
