”The brown bear (Ursus arctus) is pretty common in all parts of this country, especially in Nordlan and in the cantral districts. It is but seldom seen in the neighbourhood of Christiania. […] I asked an old Norwegian peasant woman if she had ever met a bear in her part of Norway, ”Oh, bless you, yes, often,” was her answer; ”but they never did me any harm. I have often passed one on a high hill near our village, and so close that I could almost have touched it.”
