General Discussion / Re: Marsican Brown Bear
« Last post by popinjaykev on Yesterday at 03:28:48 PM »
Hiya Levi ...yes it is a tragic story and the last numbers I received from Salviamo L'Orso was showing around 60 bears now . They had a relatively good breeding year last year and some of the photos of mothers with 2 cubs this year have been amazing. But  strangely enough, even if you take photos of Marsican bears in the National Parks you are not allowed to use them without the National parks approval.

The report I read said they tranquillised the bear in order to fit it with a radio collar and it reacted badly to the anaesthetic and died. There is an ongoing enquiry into the incident and itís tragic that another if such a small population should be lost.

It is always interesting to read the medias take on these stories . There is a quote in this article which says

' The other bear, Mario, had wandered into a village at night, and was deemed to pose a risk to its inhabitants.'

Well according to my sources there has been  no record of a Marsican bear ever attacking any human in 500 years of its Isolation.

Part of the Marsican bears endearment is that is behaves differently to the European brown bear, even its diet is 95% vegetarian which is much higher than other bears.

Oh well perhaps any publicity is good publicity?

This is a bit of a sad read about the Abruzzo bear.
