There are around 700 bears, 1,000 Eurasian lynxes, 10,000 moose and 150,000 roe deers in Estonia. Nobody dies because of that except the animals themselves when they're hunted

i was really hoping that he would come to our shelter for bears, they really care about them there. anyway, i hop he will be happy in Romania having company with other bears
Yeah, that's him. I was hoping he'd stay in Slovenia, but we're too ridiculous to have an appropriate place for him, so I was also hoping for Croatia, which is much closer than Romania (nothing against Romania, of course). The guy that found the bear punched an inspector that came for him. Attack:

^ Well, now I see the Romanian press wrote about Medo (Medo means bear in Slovenian, isn't it?). The cub even have a Facebook page.

Yeah, he's quite popular here. He could be like Knut, but I guess we're too incompetent for that. 'Medo' (or 'medvedek') is a diminutive for a bear in Slovenian (little bear), bear is 'medved'. His name is actually Srečko (Felix/Lucky).

I just came back to Slovakia from Croatia. It was just about 11 max 16C today in Austria and Slovakia and we also got some snow in the moutains. Probably the coldest July I have ever experienced.

Btw, I saw today some very last bits of snow on the peaks near Ljubljana.

I went to Passau, Germany today, 11°C there too and raining. I share your sentiment about coldest day in July, except for that time (but it was late June) at Jaufenpass/Passo Giovo: 2°C and snowing

Very cold weather in Romania also. Yesterday and today I coudn't go out just in a T-shirt like I should do in July, but I had to dress something warmer. There were 14°C or something like this...

later edit: my mom just returned today from northern Italy (Veneto) and the weather was nice there. She even went for a day at the Adriatic Sea.

It was about 16C today in Bratislava and very rainy, it was very strange to see people wearing coats in the "summer".. well and I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

About 14° in Poland as well together with an awful drizzle. I've read on the news that there was snow in high Tatras

Fortunately, I can not care about the weather right now. In two days I'll be strolling through beautiful Madrid (and dying from a heat stroke probably :>)

3 years ago in Austria around mid July it was snowing on the Grossglöckner hochalpenstraße and there was around 10-20 cm snow Only a thin pullover was on me, but it didn't stand in my way for trying out a summer snowfight

A little bot of new snow has fallen in the mountains here around Mayrhofen a few days ago. But that will be gone soon, and temperatures are expecting to rise to the 30's again, like last week.

You're kidding. Where? (unless you mean Kamnik-Savinja Alps, but we don't consider them near Ljubljana, because that would mean that Ljubljana is almost on the Austrian border )

I am wondering if there will be some snow tomorrow.

Heh, I know, but I don't feel like living just 35 km away from Austria because of mountains, and there's no road to the closest part of Austria. The farthest you can get is Kamniška Bistrica. Likewise I don't feel like living just 45 km away from Croatia.

Well, depends on which border you mean. You're not so close to Hungary.

I love Slovenia. And the people are very friendly, and they all speak English. From all the eastern block states I've been in, Slovenia made the best impression on me!
