Terve! Hello! Days are getting longer even in Ranua and the sun makes the snow shining white. It’s a good sign of the coming Spring. As you may already know the early Spring in northern Finland isn’t green but the snow and ice are slowly melting away. What you mean by ‘Spring’ comes here in late April or in May.



February is Sisuary now!

Terve! Hello! I’m sending frosty but warm greetings (can I write so?) to all the readers of this magazine. Although the weather is could and the roads icy many animal lovers come to visit mama and me which, of course, makes us very glad!



Sisu loves the wonderful whiteness

Terve velipoika! Hello big brother! Mama and I thought you would be delighted to hear from us so I’ve made a little advent letter to you. Mama and I are, of course, thinking of you and hope you and Nora will have lots of snow and ice this Winter.

Terve! Hello! I’m sorry but I must begin this newsletter telling you that I’m not amused. I’m not amused at all! The snow has vanished! This time of the year we usually have lots of snow in Ranua but this is a crazy year. I want the nice years back!!

Most polar bear fans are familiar with Churchill and Vienna’s six “V” cubs: Vitus, Victoria, Victor, Vilma, Valeska and Venus. Did you know that before Vienna was even born, another cub was born in the old Rostock “Castle”? Churchill’s first son was Boris, born December 15, 1985, with Kara as the mother. – Where is Boris now?

Die letzte Zooreise für dieses Jahr ging zu Flocke und Rasputin in Südfrankreich.

Leider hat auch die Nürnberger Lokalpresse diese Lügen-Petition verbreitet, in yellow press Manier und ohne die Erwiderung/Gegendarstellung des Tiergarten-Bürgermeisters abzudrucken.
