Dupa ce moldovenii brasoveni si-au batut joc de
ursul carpatin, acesta s-a suparat foc si a decis
sa-si ceara azil politic in Elvetia.
GENEVA (AFP) - The brown bear has returned to the Swiss Alps, more
than a century after it was last seen in the country, officials said.
Two park rangers in the southeast of the country observed the bear on
Thursday on the Ofen mountain pass, near the town of Tschierv, the
Swiss National Park said.
After days of reports from local inhabitants, it was the first
confirmed sighting of the bear, which is thought to have wandered
over from the adjacent Stelvio National Park in neighbouring Italy.
Bears officially disappeared from Switzerland in 1904, when the last
sighted specimen was shot by hunters in the same southeastern region.
The European brown bear, a protected species, can weigh up to 200
kilogrammes (440 pounds).
Bears from Slovenia were reintroduced to Italy's northeastern
Trentino region in 1999. The animals are also present in Austria.
In recent years, wolves have returned to the southern Swiss Alps
after moving north through Italy and France, while the Lynx has been
reintroduced in the northern Swiss Jura mountains.
