Polar bear boy Aron is one of the ‘house bears’ who has appeared on the pages of this magazin frequently. Now he has left Tallinn and joined Quintana in the Zoo de La Flèche in France. On behalf of the readers of Knuti’s Weekly I wish Aron a happy life in his new home.

Today happens to be Aron’s 4th birthday so we say

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, SWEET ARON!

Aronbirthday2020

Evi has posted many fantastic articles of Aron in this magazine – this one is the last report of him in Tallinn:

The news of ARON’s moving to France made me very happy, because I knew, that he was bored here and needed these changes in his life.

Of course, I was a little sad – I was used to visit him. More important, however, was knowing, that it was better for ARON-Boy !

As the day of leaving approached, I visited ARON more often. He was very playful, but it often seemed to me that he was somehow thoughtful.

The day before ARON’s moving he behaved very differently. He spent a long time in the pool, rolled himself on the ground, looked over every corner in his enclosure.

It really looked like he was saying ‘Bye-Bye’ to his home and fans in Tallinn.

ARON didn’t want to go inside even for a short moment.

I think he smelled the unknown smells – the French people had visited Polarium.

ARON left on Tuesday Morning, the 3rd of November and arrived safely in the Zoo de La Flèche.

He’s getting to used to the new surroundings, smells and the Zoo keepers.

I find the Zoo de La Flèche beautiful and the location good. I’m pretty sure – one day I’ll visit ARON there.

I wish ARON a happy life in France together with QUINTANA !!!

Zoo de La Flèche

C’est la journée idéale pour vous présenter Aron. Aron est arrivé récemment du parc Tallinna Loomaaed / Tallinn Zoo en Estonie où il est né. Il est arrivé à La Flèche dans le cadre du programme de conservation EEP de l’EAZA des ours polaires en Europe.

Aron est un jeune mâle qui fête ses 4 ans aujourd’hui!

C’est un ours attachant, dynamique et très joueur, il s’est très vite adapté à ses nouveaux quartiers et à ses soigneurs.

Nous ne manquerons pas de vous de donner de ses nouvelles prochainement !

  1. Dear Evi,

    It really looks like Aron was saying goodbye to his home in Tallinn. He was examining every inch of the enclosure – maybe he wanted to remember all the smells ….

    I wish our sweet boy a happy life in France with beautiful Quintana. Of course, I even hope he will have a happy birthday with nice surprises!

    Thank you so much for this great report! Let’s hope we will be kept up-to-date about Aron and Quintana even in the future.

    Hugs from Mervi

  2. Dear Aron

    Happy birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Have a nice day. I wish you some great surprises and lots of fun with your new best friend Quintana!!!

    Unfortunately we know nothing about the situations between Aron and Quintana.
    The zoo is closed…

    Thank you dear Evi for your wonderful birthday card.

    Hugs
    Anita

    Thank you, dear Mervi, too!

  3. Dear Anita,

    The Zoo de La Flèche is celebrating Aron’s birthday and I added three photos in this article.

  4. According to your photographs, ARON is really a ‘sweet poal bear boy’, dear EVI.
    Thank you so much for having brought in cooperation with MERVI all those lovely pics and information to KWM/us***.

    There are always such amazingly coincidents in the world and also in polar bear lives that we will never will know whether ARON had a premonition what was to come (his forthcoming move from Tallin to the Zoo de La Flèche in France – et possiblement la rencontre avec une/sa fiancée futur!).

    ***Thanks to the both of you also for the LINKs to the video of the preparations of his move to the Zoo de la Flèche and for their already affectionate press release (with the very beautiful and colurful birthday gâteau) as well as for the Link to your/EVI’s videos!

    In the video from Tallin where one sees ARON standing upright in the ‘cage-landscape’ he looks not only big but almost huge!

    Ouote: ” I wish ARON a happy life in France together with QUINTANA !!!” –
    So do I! 🙂

    Heute ist der perfekte Tag, um Euch/Ihnen ARON vorzustellen. Aron ist kürzlich aus dem ‘Zoo Tallinn/ ESTLAND’, wo er geboren wurde, zu uns gekommen. Er ist im im Rahmen des ‘Europäischen ErhaltungsZuchtProgramms der EAZA für Eisbären’ nach La Flèche gekommen.

    Aron ist ein junges Männchen, das heute 4 Jahre alt wird.
    Er ist ein attraktiver, lebhafter und sehr verspielter Bär.
    Er hat sich sehr schnell an seine neue Umgebung und an seine Pfleger angepasst.
    Wir werden Ihnen sicher demnächst Neuigkeiten über ihn bringen. [ Au ja! Bitte! 😉 ]

    This is the perfect day to present ARON to you. Aron arrived recently from Zoo Tallinn/ESTONIA where he was born. He arrived to La Flèche within the framework of the ‘European Conservation breeding Program for polar bears of EAZA’.

    ARON is a young male who celebrates his 4th birthday today.
    He is an attractive, vigorous, and playful bear.
    He adapted himslf to his new surrounding and to his keepers very quickly.
    For sure, we will give you news of him already quite soon.

  6. Liebe Evi,

    das sind schöne Fotos und Videos von Aron, der mit so feien Leckerbissen in seinem
    neuen Zoo begrüßt worden ist.
    Happy Birthday Aron und viel Glück mit deiner neuen Freundin Quintana!

    Herzliche Grüße und vielen Dank, liebe Evi. Jetzt musst du schon zwei deiner Tallinner Bären im Ausland besuchen, wenn es nach Corona endlich wieder erlaubt ist – viele Glück!
    Britta-Gudrun

  7. Dear Evi!
    Thank you for the pictures of Aron.
    I think he met a nice zoo now. His birthday cake looks wonderful.

    Happy Birthday, dear Aron!

    Hugs

  8. Dear Evi!
    Of course there were somehow mixed feelings when you had to say Good bye to your beloved bearboy…
    But you are right, for sure he will have a better life in France and I´m convinced Quintana will prevent any kind of homesickness…
    What a nice gesture of the keepers in the Zoo de la Fléche to spoil him with yummy treats on his fourth birthday! My fingers are crossed for you that you can visit him soon.
    Thank you for all your efforts and your reports with beautiful photos from the polar bears in Tallin. Very much appreciated!

    Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for editing and for the wonderful birthday collage!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ARON!

    Hugs

    Thank you for this lovely birthday card to Aron. He is already at home in France.
    Aron is going to have a pretty and intelligent surprise with Quintana. I wonder if she will be gentle with him.
