Ancient brown bear and other bones found in The Netherlands


This video is called WildLife Sanctuary – Brown bears (Ursus arctos) Full Documentary.

Translated from Dutch news agency Novum:

In Uitgeest, in Noord-Holland province in The Netherlands, at one time there were brown bears and Dalmatian pelicans.

Archaeological research [which also uncovered fourth century human traces] near Uitgeest railway station and medieval village Assum has shown this.

In all, over fifty kilo of animal bones were found.

Besides bears and pelicans, also skeletons were found of dolphins and grey seals, where at one time the water of the IJ estuary flowed. …

The brown bear lived in the wilds of The Netherlands till about the eleventh century.

In Europe today, the animal lives only in remote mountainous regions, like Scandinavia, Russia, the Balkans and Austria.
