Remarkable pictures of the abandoned house in the woods adopted by wild animals as their own

  • Amateur photographer captured the woodland creatures in their not-so-natural habitat
  • Kai Fagerström stumbled upon the house in the woods in Suomusjärvi, Finland
  • Mr Fagerström is pleased ‘nature is reclaiming the places it has lent to people’

When an amateur photographer ventured into the woods the last thing he expected to discover was a houseful of neighbours he had never met.

But that’s exactly what happened when Kai Fagerström from Salo, Finland, stumbled upon what he thought was an empty house, only to find it was occupied with wild, woodland animals.

Mr Fagerström was visiting his family’s summer house in rural Suomusjärvi, Finland, when he came across a series of derelict houses near his own. After taking a peek through one of the broken windows,he noticed tiny tracks across the dust scattered wooden floorboards.

The 48-year-old quickly realised that mice, badgers and foxes were among the many woodland creatures that had made themselves at home in the empty dwellings.

Mr Fagersttöm,who manages properties for a parish in Salo said: ‘When I go into these houses, it’s like stepping back in time—the past lingers in the corners’.

He told National Geographic: ‘There’s consolidation in the idea that nature is reclaiming the places it has lent to people’.
