Even in Orsa the high season of the year is going on. One reliable sign is the ‘Polargrillen’ which is located right by the polar bears’ enclosure. The visitors can enjoy coffee, soft drinks and snacks and admire Ewa and WilbĂ€r at the same time – if the white couple chooses to be in this part of their huge enclosure. 🙂

During the Summer season the brown bears and the polar bears are given a chance to catch their fish. Orsa has a special permission for that. The bear fishing can be seen every Wednesday and Friday.

The brownies are excellent fishermen and women. The Kodiak bear Taquka and his friend brown bear Felix are still together and love the fishing adventures.

Oh bear, that one escaped but soon I will catch a salmon trout!

WilbĂ€r knows something is going on …..

This time the bears are in the lower part of the enclosure. It looks like Herr WilbÀr has caught sight of something under the water.

Patience is the mother of all virtues!! 🙂

A refreshing shower does wonders on a hot day.

Salmon trouts are yammy but a carot isn’t so bad either …

These small fur balls love their pink ball.

The snow leopard looks always gorgeous – no matter if the background is snow or green grass.

The Persian leopard likes the shadow which the tree offers.

It isn’t easy to see the wolverine but with a little bit of luck this beauty can be seen on the way from the polar bears to the exit.

The best chance to see this beautiful lynx is at the feeding time. Otherwise they’re mostly hiding in their ‘cat forest’.

The same goes for the wolves. They also have a big forest but when the keepers come with treats they will come and present themselves. 🙂

Knuti’s Weekly wishes all the animals and their keepers in Orsa a wonderful Summer time!

  1. Dear Mervi
    Thank you for this great set of photos
    from Orsa. Wilbaer is nowva very fine fellow..

  2. Liebe Mervi,

    wie schön ist es zu sehen, dass auch in Orsa jetzt summertime ist!
    FĂŒr die Tiere bedeuten diese VerĂ€nderungen in der Natur auch eine interessante Abwechslung.
    Ich habe keine Probleme damit, dass die BĂ€ren in Orsa lebende Fische fangen dĂŒrfen – egal ob
    mit oder ohne Erlaubnis.
    Die Leoparde, Luchse und Wolferine sehen prima aus und WilbÀr und Ewa sowieso.

    Vielen Dank fĂŒr den Einblick in den Orsa Park im Sommer und liebe GrĂŒĂŸe!

  3. Liebe mervi!

    Danke fuer nette Fotos aus Orsa. Es ist schön. dass unsere Freunden jagen können. Und dann Lachs schmeckt sicher himmlisch, selbst geschafft.

    Hugs

  4. Dear Mervi!
    It is great to see WilbÀr again. He and Ewa are adult bears now. It is great for the bears to catch a fish in the water.
    The young fur balls are lovely.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  5. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the new pics of the animals in Orsa in summer – that finally arrived even in North Finland.
    They all look beautifuI and I wish them a wonderful summertime.

    Hugs

  6. Hallo Mervi

    Schön mal wieder was aus Orsa-Grönklitt zu sehen.
    Die EisbĂ€ren sehen toll aus – WilbĂ€rle wirkt sehr
    entspannt. Die BraunbĂ€rchen sind niedlich. 🙂
    Besonders gefallen mir Luchs und Vielfraß.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe
    Chris 🙂

  7. Oh BEAR! What wonderful picture you brought us from your wilderly-like Predator Center in ORSA.
    Not only the both of you, WILBÄRle and EWA, look great but also your brown neighbors TAQUKA and FELIX. They really seem to be happy (felix!) while fishing!

    I also like to see all the other furry guys in your neighborhood.

    The ‘Polargrillen’-day for sure is/was fun and yummy for all your visitors. And the little fur balls were spoilt by a pink colored ball. Everybody happy so, up there in ORSA!?

    Thanks to the ORSA PREDATOR CENTER and to MERVI for having brought this contribution/report with the wonderful pics to us.

  8. Dear Mervi

    thank you so much for this wonderful report and pictures from Orsa.

    Hugs
    Anita

  9. dear Mervi,
    all the animals from Orsa are looking very good. WilbÀr and Ewa and the sweet brown bears enjoy the big pool
    I wish all the dear animals and their dear keepers a very happy summer time, thank you for these wonderful pictures, it is always a big pleasure to see content animals in a nice area.
    dear greetings to Sweden

  10. Dear Mervi, what a pleasure to read again some news from Orsa. Although I must confess that first I had to get used to pics WITHOUT snow but the animals will appreciate the chance of the season (well, at last, I hope so and furthermore, their Summer is shorter than ours). I really appreciate it that the polar bears and the brownies are having the opportunity to catch their own fish. That is once more another enrichment in their lives. The two young brown bear cubs and their pink ball are so adorable.

  11. Liebe Mervi,
    schon lange nichts mehr von Orsa gesehen!
    Lebende Fische fĂŒttern ist eine tolle TierbeschĂ€ftigung fĂŒr BĂ€ren aber bei uns leider nicht möglich.
    Kleine BraunbÀren gibt es auch, nur leider viel zu wenig Bilder von den kleinen Pelzkugeln.
    Der ideale Ort fĂŒr mich ist der Polargrill, essen und trinken und dabei entspannt den EisbĂ€ren zusehen.
    Kodiak -und BraunbÀr sind immer noch dicke Freunde und gehen gemeinsam auf Fischfang.
    Vielen Dank fĂŒrs Zeigen und auch ich wĂŒnsche den tierischen Bewohnern von Orsa einen schöne und nicht zu heissen Sommer.
    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe Moni K

  12. Liebe Mervi,

    vielen Dank fĂŒrs Einstellen der wunderschönen Bilder aus Orsa.
    WilbĂ€r ist groß geworden.
    Tolle Fotos von WilbÀr und Mama.

    Auch die Braun/KodiakbÀren beim Fische fangen gefallen mir gut.
    Besonders die Kleinen sind goldig.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe
    Monika
