We expect villagers in India to put up with tigers yet we cannot manage to protect the few remaining large carnviores in Europe. Pfft. Pathetic. ================ On Nov. 1, the last autochtonous female bear "Cannelle" was killed by a hunter during a wildboar hunt, in the French PyrÃ©nÃ©es. The hunted is believed to have shot in self defense, after the bear attacked him to protect her single cub of the year. The wildboar hunt took place despite wide awareness of the mother & cub presence. Fate of the cub remains unknown. The autochtonous Pyrenean lineage is now extinct, other female bears (4 individuals) are part of the reintroduced population from Slovenia, in the central part of the range.
