Don't forget polar bears. Europe has them in Nenets Autonomous Okrug (including Kolguyev Island and Vaygach Island), in Novaya Zemlya and Jan Mayen Land (Archangelsk Oblast), and in Svalbard.

Brown bear population density map for Russia:

https://vuzlit.ru/imag_/28/3037/image002.jpg
https://vuzlit.ru/23586/chislennost_osobennosti_rasprostraneniya

Russia totally dominates in terms of its brown bear count: "There are approximately 200,000 brown bears left in the world.[76] The largest populations are in Russia with 120,000,[77] the United States with 32,500, and Canada with around 25,000."

As it's shown in the maps there are lot of wolves in the Alps, fortunately they didn't got eliminated by modern life/hunting.

There are also lynx and lot of eagles. (Great eagles not little one)

That is the Boreal lynx. In Spain we have our own species of Lynx: iberian lynx. Search for it.


And we are the only country of Europe with our own wolves (wolf signatus), lynx (iberian lynx) and bear (pyrenaic bear) species of these incredible animals.

And it is curious to see that the UK have extinguised most of its fauna and they keep telling about how in Spain we are bad with animals since 0.5% of the population of Spain likes bullfighting. They keep believing that most of us like it and we are an example of protecting wild life. In fact, we are the western European country with most biodiversity. We hold 50% of all fauna and flora species in Europe, with lots of endemism.

It's crazy how many bears dwell in Transylvania. I spoke with my grandma recently, she said five bears showed up in her backyard at night a few days ago.

We went to look for bears after sunset with my cousin last summer, I counted at least 6 outside the village, on the hills. One bear literally run across the road in front of our car.

Do you have protection laws for bears in your country? Don´t they have conflict with the persons that owns cows or sheep? Our bears live mostly in the mountains and very rarely they go to the villages (2 times in a year and it appears on the news).

I don't live there, so I am not familiar with the Romanian laws. Sadly the bears are really overpopulated, they already killed a couple of people and animals too. I heard that sometimes the Romanian goverment allows to shoot out the really problematic ones, but other than that they can't really control the bears.

The Iberian Lynx has seen better days though

Proto-Indo-Europeans had a bear cult, meaning they didn't even want to say it's name because they were so scared shitless. PIE words for bear translate to "the brown one"..... and in russian "the one who eats honey" because they had a weird superstition if you use its actual name then you will someone one.

Once resident in Scotland, the lynx is thought to have become extinct in the UK during the medieval period around 1,300 years ago.

But i came face to face with one as a 3yr old kid on my own, in a deep managed Scotish forest, it was cute. So even today they are probably still out there. They are thinking of re-introducing them now, i hope they do.

you still can hear in the speech of forest areas inhabitants - "the master" like forest lord instead of bear

Good news from the Netherlands (https://www.wolveninnederland.nl/):


Inmiddels hebben wolven zich in Nederland weer gevestigd en zijn op de Veluwe in 2019 de eerste wolvenpups geboren. Ook vlak over de grens in de landen om ons heen leven inmiddels permanent wolven, zoals in het Belgische Leopoldsburg en het Duitse Meppen, waar ook al jongen geboren zijn. Nederland en dit was de eerste zekere wolf in zo'n 150 jaar tijd die Nederland bezocht. De tweede zekere wolf werd in het najaar van 2016 in Beuningen in Twente gezien. Aan de hand van DNA kon een hond worden uitgesloten. Sinds de zomer van 2017 bezoekt de ene na de andere wolf Nederland. Sinds de zomer van 2018 leven er territoriale wolven op de Veluwe. Eén van deze wolvinnen heeft een partner en in mei 2019 zijn de eerste 5 jongen geboren.

The bears are strictly protected in Romania, but their natural habitat has been affected as Romania is dealing with increased deforestation and illegal logging used for international markets, hence the bears looking for food in villages.

The real extension now is more like 1980 after 30 years of heavy work to reproduce lynx and much better protection laws. The issue was than before 1970 all wildlife was considered huntable or killed because it made harm to cow people or agricultores. Lynx, bears and wolves are much better now in Spain than 30-40 years ago.

Good to hear. God bless those Spanish Lynx, I've always said that. I'm gonna say a pray for those furry bastards. They're coming back.

Another reason why Russia is Northern European: according to the map below, the range of habitat of the European moose doesn't cover Denmark or West Germanic countries, but it covers almost whole of European Russia (apart from Southern Federal District, North Caucasian Federal District, Kanin Peninsula, and the arctic islands):

https://ars.els-cdn.com/content/image/1-s2.0-S1616504717300150-gr3.jpg
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1616504717300150

The habitat of the European moose extends to Western Siberia, which is one more way in which Western Siberia is part of a similar ecoregion as the Scandinavian peninsula and Northeast Europe.

Yes but without connections, food and product trading with the continent you'll eventually run out of food and UK is not famous for being a self-sufficient country about food. You'll be trapped in a island waiting to die that's not a better scenary.

Being an island you're most of the times protected from foreigner invasions (this is what kept UK safe during history) but it also has its weak points.

20 years ago there were very very few wolves in the Italian alps.. today there are many wolves.... i have no idea where they come from....Centuries ago wolves and bears were typical animals of the alps..

In a Zombie outbreak everyone on the continent would be dead or zombies. Id rather take my chances fighting for resources with a human, than fighting millions of zombies with my bare hands, the infected fleas alone would kill me. Eventually here the population would decrease to a level where the remaining few could live very happily and im sure i could easily find a hot girl too. Not something i could do on the continent, a zombie would bite my dick off.

It's not that bad, one may find at most bear tracks when hiking in the mountains. Bears don't like us people, they tend to keep their distance. As for wolves, I have never seen one in my life (outside a zoo). :)
