The Swedish brown bear lives foremost in the dense forests up in the north of Sweden. The sustenance the bears diet consists most widely of insects, berries and weed, but it can also consist of bigger prey.
During the autumn the bears starts to eat a lot of berries, to amass more fat reserve in the body before the bear goes into hibernation.
If you were to meet with a bear, you should not run away but step away from the direction of where the bear can smell scent from you. When a bear raises up on his back legs, it is not a sign of attacking you, but a sign of curiosity and the bear wanting to get to know you better. Mostly, they are just curious creatures. The bears that have seen human beings show a little bit of attitude and dominance as is their nature.
Some of us may have the wrong image of bears, they are as scared of us as we are of them, but they act in a different way, with more curiosity, which is only in their nature. If you treat them in the right way, the become friendlier towards you.
