Lynn Freeman - Bear spotting in Finland

From The Weekend , 11:04 am on 4 January 2020

Lynn Freeman went to the forest in northern Finland last May, camera in hand, and hit out in a wooden hut, waiting for brown bears, wolves and wolverines to go by. 

It turned into a roller coaster of emotions, from sheer delight at the family of three bear cubs and their protective mother,  to concern for the cubs' welfare following the arrival of a wolf.
