Friends of bear M13 express outrage on Facebook over death


Bolzano, February 20 - A vast following on
Facebook and a string of petitions were not enough to save
EmmeTredici (M13), the popular brown bear being followed by
wildlife authorities for months in the mountains straddling
Switzerland and Italy.
The young bear, tagged with an electronic tracking device,
has been targeted as a menace by Swiss rangers since he broke a
window and crawled into an unoccupied cabin near the mountain
town of Poschiavo in Switzerland close to the Italian border
last November.
The bear, who usually lives on the Italian side of the
region, had just come out of hibernation in the Swiss canton of
Graabuchen or Grisons (Grigioni in Italian) on Tuesday when
wildlife authorities killed him citing him a nuisance for his
"lack of inhibition when near inhabited areas".
Last week, the bear's brother, M14, was killed when hit on
the Italian side of the border by an SUV.
Fans on Emme Tredici's (M13) Facebook page who previously
pleaded for the bear to cross back over into Italian territory
have left hundreds of messages mourning his death.
"I hope one of the Bern bears escapes and runs amok in the
criminal court deal a real blow of justice," said one
fan on the social network.
The Facebook page's banner with a picture of M13 in a tree
has been replaced with a bloody paw print.
