Abstract: Camera trapping proves, after almost half a century, the southernmost area of distribution of the steppe polecat in Europe (the foothills of the southern slopes of Varbishka Stara Planina, Bulgaria). Other new observations from Bulgaria reveal so far undescribed maternal behaviour of marbled polecats. A significant number of juvenile individuals of this species are threatened by and fall victims to road accidents at the end of spring, when together with their mothers they leave the dens.
