A new-born brown bear close to the village of Vikos in Ioannina, stares in confusion, looking, perhaps for the first time, the human species. The photo was taken by Georgia Kanellopoulou, a climber and local resident. Many times in their walks in the dense forest, small and inexperienced young bears stray from their mothers. After a while, however, as happened in this case, they find their way and run back to safety. The encounter with such a beautiful and sweet creature seems completely harmless, but the circumstances are totally deceiving. Local residents, familiar with a lot of encounters with bears, argue that these large animals are generally harmless. Most of the times, as soon as they meet a human, they escape in the opposite direction. The most dangerous encounter though is with a new-born bear and that is because, most of the times, the mother remains hidden close by, ready to defend her offspring in any threat.
