Police in South Karelia have advised the public against spending time outdoors near highway 6 in Taavetti. The bear cub was hit by a car on the road on Tuesday night.
The authorities said earlier it is likely that the cub’s mother is looking for her offspring and is quite nervous. Local residents were advised to stay indoors for a couple of days.
Sightings of the bear should be reported to the local hunting association or to the emergency number 112.
