Bear killed by train

Around 9pm on Sunday the 14th of June, the female bear Öda was killed in a train collision in Emådalen, Orsa municipality. Öda, who was 15 years old, has been followed by the SBBRP since 2000. During these years, she has produced four litters with a total of eleven cubs, whereof five have died and five are still followed by the SBBRP. The eleventh cub never received a transmitter, and its fate is unknown. Öda’s mother was euthanized in 1995 following injuries caused by collision with a train in the same area as Öda.
