From October 1st feeding of game animals is prohibited in Estonian forests, and so the bear camera ends its transmission. Usually we have closed a couple of weeks later.
Bears generally start their hibernation in November; before that they have to fast for nearly a month to empty the intestines – they do not defecate during the winter sleep.
From the forest the signal reached the Elisa mobile mast at 8 kilometres distance by way of the Interline antennas, and from there went into the Televõrgud fibre optic cable. Televõrgud carried the initial camera image to the EENet server where it was decoded and split for viewers.
