The Marsican brown bear is on the brink of extinction. Despite authorities spending millions of Euros on its conservation, high human-caused mortality is menacing the survival of this distinct subspecies.

Now, this is depressing. I don't know where Italy stands on animal conservation, but, they better come up with a plan.

With the large human population all over the world land for Bears and other wildlife is become harder to come by. Italy is more worried about the voters than the Bears. There should start a captured Breeding program in zoo's. I am one person that does not like Zoo's. So I saying a lot that I don't like.

Such a beautiful creature, such a sad story. The causes of their deaths is deeply disturbing.

Italy is not wrong tooo much, the bears leave the nearly boarders and were shot in other neighbour-countries. Beause of: the people are AFRAID ?!? - but first about their stupid money they loose if bears ripping cattles, goats or deer .............
