English translation Liis
That all kinds of animals like to lick salt is well known. Now the children saw that hares are no exception. In the trail camera of the Kiviõli children the hare (mountain or snow or white hare, Lepus timidus) even stands up to get at the salt cube on the pole. There is a glimpse of its black ear tips too.
The children of the Kiviõli Keskkool (High School) managed to list 16 species (beginning from autumn) in their trail camera! There is even a wild boar. A solitary young boar came to munch on frost-bitten potatoes.
