Buyan the bear says Croatia is going to win

Buyan, a male Siberian brown bear, appears to have picked Croatia while attempting to predict the result of the soccer World Cup final match between France and Croatia during an event at the Royev Ruchey Zoo in Krasnoyarsk, Russia.

The trend of animal oracles throughout landmark championships has been around since 2008, which saw the legendary Paul the Octopus, which accurately predicted the outcome of eight matches in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, including the final game in which Spain defeated the Netherlands. The octopus lived for two years and died in an aquarium in the German city of Oberhausen, which now boasts a monument in honour of the legendary Paul.

The number of oracle animals has skyrocketed since then, with nearly every World Cup host city introducing its own fluffy or not so fluffy foreseer.
