I was in the Apple Store in Leicester yesterday looking at the MacBook Pro and the sales assistant clicked on a photograph of a bear that I recognised. I couldn't help but blurt out, not once but twice, 'I know that bear'! The salesman smiled while I struggled to remember the bears name. It was Bodari a bear from Finland. I visited Finland In 2006 and spent some time at Martinselkonen watching wild brown bears - Bodari was the star of the show. A film crew named him Bodari, which means strong man or body builder after they saw him carry off a dead cow. Bodari has a set of distinctive scars on his nose.
