Good News from Mikhail Potapovich

In today’s
Lidové noviny (a Czech daily): Probuzený ruský medvěd zvěstuje jaro - Awake Russian bear announces spring.

Mikhail Potapovich, a Kamchatkan brown bear who has lived in the Moscow Zoo for 20 years has reportedly never been wrong. He always comes out of hibernation just when spring is about to arrive. Mikhail Potapovich woke up on Monday. By Max’s reasoning, our winter cannot last longer than Russia’s, so spring must be just around the corner here too.
