Authentic about brown bears 07/21/2023 3:08 PM

In the last six months, several reports of brown bears have been published in the area of the Bükk National Park Directorate. During the investigation of the presumed occurrences, we mostly did not find any traces confirming the presence of the species, but rather fresh life traces of other mammal species.

Other recently reported alleged brown bear occurrences were also investigated. In the last two weeks, we have been able to confirm some of the reports of brown bears in the Bükk and Uppony mountains.

In case of sightings of brown bears, we kindly ask the public to contact the Directorate first, as all substantiated reports (with precise location and possibly a photo) will be investigated in the field. Our central and emergency telephone number is +36 30/861-3808.
