Elk cows started giving birth in Estonian forests in the last week of April, but the elk population will increase during the whole of May.

The boar lazes. The dried tree is a very pleasant place for him, here he can scratch himself, get rid of the old fur and leave his scent marks. The boar enjoys all these activities.
