Geocache Description:

Helsingin Metsälässä oleva lemmikkien hautausmaa on perustettu jo vuonna 1947. Viimeisen leposijansa on saanut sieltä tuhannet lemmikkieläimet, joista kuuluisin lienee Presidentti Paasikiven koira.

Siitä, onko paikalla ollut aikaisemmin intiaanien hautausmaa, ei minulla ole tietoa...

Annetusta pisteestä löydät (helposti ja ilman tonkimista) lopullisen kätkön koordinaatit. Purkki on puolilitrainen ja sen löytämisen ei pitäisi olla turhan hankalaa kenellekään. Kätkön löytäminen lumiseen aikaan on varmuudella kovin hankalaa.

Toivon, että kätkön toteutus ei loukkaa ketään. Ehkä kuitenkin kaikkein herkkämielisimpien eläinintoilijoiden ei tätä kätköä kannata välttämättä etsiä.

Hautausmaan alueelle ei tarvitse mennä!


Pet cemetery in Metsälä, few kilometers from Helsinki downtown was established already in 1947. It has given the final place to rest for thousands of pets, of wich the most well-known is propably the dog of the former president of Finland mr Paasikivi.

Whether there is an ancient indian graveyard at this same area or not, nobody seems to know for sure...

At the given coordinates you´ll find the final coordinates for the cache, easily without digging or moving anything. The cache itself is 0,5 litre plastic box, and it shouldn´t be too difficult to found for anybody. The cache is not availible, if there is snow on the ground! (Etsi = seek in finnish)

I hope no one gets offended by this cache. But if you are really emotional and animal-loving person, you might not want to search this cache.

There is no need to get to the cemetery area!
