Attention to hikers in Linnansaari and especially in Sammakkoniemi! A badger used to easy food steals food from hikers in Sammakkoniemi. Don't leave any food unattended outside or in the tent! You should lift the food for example on a tree branch or somewhere higher or put it in a waterproof bag, so that the smells do not attract unwanted visitors.
