Bear cubs playing

Ursos arctos arctos , captive
European Brown Bear
Europäischer Braunbär

Björnparken, Orsa Grönklitt, Sweden

Young bears fighting - it was fun to watch the cubs playing and struggling. In Björnparken in Orsa Grönklitt in Sweden they have a phantastic environment (still captive), and if you like to watch them yourself (slightly larger in the meantime, as the picture is from 20020) you will find a webcam on the homepage (http://www.orsagronklitt.se/bjornpark_GB.asp). It's northern Europe's largest bear park with a good viewing platform situated in the middle of the smaller bear area, while around in the large 90000m² fenced forest area more bears and other predators can be found.
