A nationwide park in central Italy is investigating the dying of a uncommon brown bear throughout an operation to seize it.
Biologists on the park within the Apennine mountains had trapped the animal to suit him with a radio collar so they may monitor his actions.
However the male Marsican bear started to battle to breathe as he was being sedated and died shortly afterwards, regardless of efforts to revive him.
Wildlife officers have described the lack of the animal as “very severe”.
“It is a subspecies at risk of extinction that now counts solely 50 people or little extra,” stated WWF Italia, because it referred to as for a assessment of seize procedures.

The opposite bear, Mario, had wandered right into a village at night time, and was deemed to pose a threat to its inhabitants.
“It’s the first time we’ve been confronted with an anaesthetic emergency throughout a seize,” Antonio Carrara, president of the nationwide park, advised media.
Though the protocol “reduces the dangers for the bear to a minimal, they can’t be dominated out utterly”, he stated.
He had “full confidence within the park’s workers” and hoped that the autopsy would “shed full mild on the reason for dying”, he added.
