According to Nature, there is a law in Norway
according to which hunters do not have the right to kill a bear if
she with a teddy bear. It has been a certain time since accepting this,
in general, humane legislation, and scientists observing
the behavior of brown bears (Ursus arctos) in the country has become

By the way, we add that in the exclusion zone of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant after
accidents, to the surprise of scientists, animals not only were not affected by
radiation, and, on the contrary, began to fruitfully multiply and develop:

�”Has become more subtle”. But the reason for this metamorphosis lies not in radiation, but in
that the person in the area has ceased to interfere in
nature, gave her the opportunity to develop as she wants and knows how.
And no radiation in this case is a hindrance (as long as there is no
human) for the successful development of all types of animals and
The example of the Norwegian bears, which leads the journal Nature,
practically proves the same thing, only as if from the reverse,
when a person constantly makes changes in the world around, even
sometimes not realizing how one or another of his actions will affect
nature. For example, here’s what John Swenson writes about –
Researcher at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences:
In Norway, you can now meet the female Ursus arctos with
bear cub four times more often than alone, if you compare this
figure, say, with the nineties of the last century. And especially
this is striking in areas where traditionally most often
shooting of these animals is conducted. It turns out that bears are intuitive

using their own laws. However, nature as a whole from this only
