The bears normally sleep through the winter. But it’s a more light sleep and they do also leave their forest den.

Caught by a lynx surveillance camera

Apparently, the young bear, who had been caught playing in the snow in the forest of Kočevje for three hours and having fun with a spruce twig, decided that he had enough hibernation.

The recording was made as part of the Life Lynx project – which primary objective is rescuing the Dinaric-SE Alpine lynx population from extinction and to preserve it in the long term.
