Bears say goodnight as snow falls in Russia


January, 2007
After weeks of rain and unprecedented high temperatures, cold and snow finally hit back in central Russia, sending bears to their winter slumber and endangering other hibernating species like hedgehogs. "As soon as snow covered the earth, the brown bear that stayed awake all this time returned to his lair and fell asleep." However, hedgehogs - who also failed to go into hibernation and are unlikely to do so now - risk "dying of cold and hunger" with the return of proper Russian winter. Temperatures registered in Russia this winter since November 20 have TOPPED EVERY RECORD. Frost did not come back to Russia until earlier this week, with snow finally covering the green grass and mushrooms that all this while grew in suburban Moscow's forests.
