While there are no wild bears living in Scotland today, experts say that Scotland used to be home to two different types of wild bears: brown bears and polar bears. These, however, died out when hunted to extinction as late as the 5th century. In Celtic mythology, there are stories of Artio, a bear goddess. Historically, she was worshipped by the Helvettii tribe, who migrated to Caledonia from Switzerland. As the tribe moved, so did stories of their bear goddess. In ritual, white bear-shaped candles were lit in her honor, a plea for her help during the hunting season.
