Ilpo Kojola, a professor at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, who studies natural resources, said that the bear is very rare.
It’s Unique. It caught my attention because it came up out of nowhere. Veijo Toivoniemi, who is from Haapajoki and just caught a rare white bear, says the same thing. Toivoniemi took these pictures in Kuhmo Lentiira, which is a bear-watching area just a few kilometres from the Russian border.
Bears are often seen in the area, so platforms for watching them have been put up. That’s what makes it so special. When I first got to the neighbourhood, it was the first thing that caught my eye. This is what Veijo Toivoniemi of Haapajoki, who took a picture of a rare white bear, says. Toivoniemi took the pictures in Kuhmo Lentiira, a place near the Russian border where you can watch bears. People often see bears in the area. So, there are observation booths there so people can watch these animals.
But, contrary to what most people think, Toivoniemi says that all bears are wild and can’t be tamed. He thinks that there must be a tame mouse in the shooting booths because mice scare people so easily. I was aware that this kind of bear had been seen before, but no pictures of it had been sent to me yet. The chances were in my favour, and better situations came up. Toivoniemi said that the bear had only been in the area for a few minutes. Once, it made the Crows so embarrassed that they left the area quickly.
It went away after a big male bear came into the area and scared it. A bear was seen by Toivoniemi a few kilometres from the border with Russia. Photos By: Veijo Toivoniemi Toivoniemi thought it was an honour to have killed a white bear. It was, in fact, a magical time. That’s probably the one and only time I’ll ever see one of those. Anything could happen, but this is an experience like no other. He says that it was a chance that only comes around once in a lifetime. Over the past 17 years, Toivoniemi’s photographs have been a record of the natural world. He also has a regular column in a local weekly newspaper. But he isn’t the type of expert who can explain why the white bear in question is the way it is. Someone who has “A Very Exceptionally Coloured Individual” in their name.
Ilpo Kojola, a research professor at the Natural Resources Centre, told Ilta-Sanomat that seeing a bear in Toivoniemi is very rare, even on a global scale. Even though the bear is very pale, it is not albino. I have never been told about a single blonde bear. Some of these might be out there somewhere. Still, it has its own unique colours. A study professor at the Natural Resources Centre thinks that white fur is caused by genetic factors.
In the same way, Kojola thinks that the Bear’s colour comes from his genes. Birds that eat a lot of junk food have been said to change colours, like getting white feathers, but bears don’t do this. Kojola thinks that the bear is from a litter that made headlines in Kuhmo in 2018 because two of the puppies had light fur. Iltalehti was one of the news outlets that wrote about this.
