Romania is home to the largest brown bear population in Europe. Despite a continuous coexistence of bears and people in this country, nowadays this impressive large carnivore has a bad reputation among the locals because of frequent damages caused in livestock and in crops. Lots of information wavering between truth and myth circulate in the public discourse. Our mini-series was created on the initiative of a specialist researcher in order to better understand this charismatic predator.
